Sharon has been part of the ACW Diocesan Council for 10 + years serving as the rep. for Huron Deanery, rep. to HCN and rep. for Spiritual Development. She is a cradle Anglican and still attends the parish church of her childhood, St. Thomas’ Church, Seaforth. Sharon is a member of the choir, the Altar Guild, president of the ACW & co-chair of the prayer shawl ministry.
Whilst living and teaching in Brantford for 26 years, she attended Grace Church & St. Jude’s church but never really left St. Thomas, Seaforth where she returned for major feast days as well as many weekends. During this time she sang in the choir, served on the board and was vestry clerk of St. Thomas’ Church.
She finished her teaching career in Huron County and upon retirement served on the board of the Women’s Shelter & Second Stage Housing in Goderich. She also was part of the Clinton Community Players and acted in several productions. She tried her hand as a director as well.
Sharon is an active member of Delta Mu Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority in Clinton.
The many friendships made during her time on the diocesan council are special treasures for Sharon.
Trudy has been a member of the ACW Diocesan Council for seven years holding the positions of treasurer, policy chair and currently is the London Deanery rep.
She was born and raised an Anglican in St. Catharines, where she attended St. George’s.
After relocating with her son to London in 1977, she began a career in business management, pursued part-time studies at U.W.O, graduated from Fanshawe College in Creative Arts, and more recently completed a Lay Certificate in Theology from Huron College.
She gratefully participates in regular worship service as a lay administrator, intercessor and liturgical reader, and has been an active member of the Evening Women Group of St. Paul’s for 29 years. An oboist with the Mocha Shrine Concert Band, she performs in concert with her husband David, at local retirement/nursing homes in support of the Shriners Hospitals for Children.
As this is her final year with the ACW Diocesan Council, she is most grateful for having the opportunity to have met and served with the Diocesan Council members as sisters in Christ and encourages others to prayerfully consider joining the council when positions are available.
