After many years of faithful service to the Diocese of Huron, Sarah Chase has indicated her desire to retire from Huron Church House as of August 1, 2024.
Sarah joined the Diocesan staff on December 1, 1997 and is currently the longest-serving employee at Church House. She started in Accounts Receivable before moving to the Bishop’s Office, then Parish Services and eventually into her current role as Synod Coordinator. She has provided staff support for innumerable committees including Diocesan Council and has also been the informal social convenor for the Church House staff functions.
We will miss Sarah’s caring demeanor, her knowledge of and deep love for the Diocese, and her smile. Sarah will be recognised with other retirees at the next Diocesan Synod—the first one in a long time that she will not have fully planned.
We wish Sarah many years of happy and healthy retirement!
