Christine Crouch is the Chatham-Kent Deanery Diocesan ACW Council representative.
Born in Sarnia, ON, Christine has made her home in Chatham for the past 48 years, where she worked in the office of a truck manufacturer for 30 years. She has helped raise five wonderful children who now contribute to various walks of life, including a midwife, electrician, auto mechanic, and two successful private business owners. She also has 10 wonderful grandchildren ranging in age from 6 to 16.
Christine was a member of St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Chatham for many years until it closed in 2017. While there, she performed many duties including Parish Council, Alter Guild, Reader, Greeter, Sunday collection counter, ACW Secretary and President. Now she attends Holy Trinity/St.Paul’s amalgamated parishes and continues to serve on Alter Guild, and as Reader, Greeter, and ACW Vice-president.
Christine is also a member of C-K Grandee’s, a Grandmothers to Grandmothers group organized by the Stephen Lewis Foundation to help Grandmothers in Africa who are raising their grandchildren themselves because their children have died of AIDS.
Being on Council, and getting to know the ladies from all across the Diocese is an experience she feels blessed to be a part of.
One of the best days of the year, that she looks forward to, is the Annual Conference and Meeting of the ACW Diocese of Huron at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London being held this year on Saturday April 27. It is a wonderful day out for all ACW Ladies. She encourages all who can make it to join us for fun and fellowship, and to see your Council at work.
