Bishop Stephen Andrews is pleased to announce the appointment of The Reverend Marie Loewen as Archdeacon of Temiskaming, effective 1 May 2014. She takes up the role from Archdeacon Linda White, who has retired.
Marie was made Deacon in 2002 and ordained Priest the following year. After a dozen years working in the insurance industry, she became a Pastoral Intern at St Brice’s Church, North Bay, and later served as Programme Associate for the Temiskaming Deanery. For four years Marie served as Regional Dean for Temiskaming Deanery. In 2001 she was appointed the Part-time Incumbent of St Mary Magdalene’s, Sturgeon Falls. In 2005 she took up her current appointment as Incumbent of Christ Church, North Bay. She has studied at Nipissing University, University of Waterloo, and Thorneloe University.
Bishop Andrews states that ‘Marie will be a worthy successor to Archdeacon Linda, with whom she has worked closely. She has proven herself to be an effective leader and I look forward to benefiting from her experience and pastoral insights in the challenges that face us as a diocese.’
The date of her collation has yet to be set.
