Susan is one of our Deputy Wardens, she is married to John King and they have a 19 year old daughter Victoria.  Susan was born and raised in Toronto and is a life long Anglican.  She came to St. Margaret’s in 2005 after St. Agnes was closed and has been an active member ever since.  I try to live by the words Veni Vidi Victum.  All the best in Christ the Lord.

Charlene Evans

Charlene’s roots run deep in the life and service of St. Margaret’s.  This is Charlene’s church from birth.  Her family has been an integral part of the history and shaping of St. Margaret’s.  For a number of years Charlene was absent for the life and ministry of St. Margaret’s as she worked and lived in London, England.  Upon her return to Canada, Charlene picked up her journey of faith at St. Margarets.

She has been the People’s Warden since March 2013.

Doug became a member of St. Margaret’s in the fall of 2012.

Doug has been in ministry for almost 30 years serving as a Pastor, Regional Youth Leader, National Youth Leader, Human Resources Department Head, Fundraiser and Area Leader.  Leaving the ministry full time was a difficult decision for Doug but he has found service at St. Margaret’s to be fulfilling and challenging.
