Bishop announces new appointments

Posted: Feb 2, 2018

Bishop Anne Germond is pleased to announce the following appointments in the Diocese of Algoma:


Deanery Appointments

Johanna Kristolaitis as the Deanery Facilitator for the Deanery of Temiskaming effective February 1, 2018.  Johanna has a BA (Hons) from the University of Toronto and a BEd from Nipissing University.  Rooted in the Anglican tradition, she is currently a member of St. John the Divine in North Bay.  She is actively involved in children’s ministries in the parish and has facilitated events to include the involvement of children and youth not currently associated with the church.  She has a vision to expand outreach within the community for the benefit of local and global initiatives and has been communicating with other parishes in the deanery to encourage deanery-wide involvement.

Johanna has extensive employment and volunteer experience in education, theatre and arts, literacy, childcare centres and the Scouting movement.

In her own words, Johanna cites:  “Programs in this Deanery have provided me opportunities to participate in Challenge and Cursillo weekends, to be a counsellor at Camp Temiskaming, to shed light on dark parts of our shared history through the Blanket Exercise, to dance in the joy of the Spirit, to serve and to receive.”

We welcome Johanna to her new position serving the Deanery and the Diocese and uphold her in prayer as she commences this ministry.

Lana Grawbarger as Lay Incumbent for St. John’s, Garden River, effective January 1, 2018.

The Reverend Richard White as Interim Incumbent for St. Mary Magdalene, Sturgeon Falls, effective January 15, 2018.

Benjamin Gillard as Summer Student Minister for St. Christopher’s, McGregor Bay, effective June 1, 2018.
