Knox-st. Paul’s wel­comes new Min­is­ter

Seaway News - - News - SHAWNA O’NEILL shawna.oneill@tc.tc

CORN­WALL, On­tario - Erin Mcintyre, Knox-st. Paul’s new Min­is­ter, has lived in sev­eral re­gions across the coun­try but is hop­ing to plant lon­glast­ing roots in Corn­wall.

“I’m so new, I’m still sort­ing things out,” said Mcintyre, who of­fi­cially started work on Sept. 1. “Right now I’m just let­ting things wash over me as I learn the com­mu­nity and how I fit in here.”

Mcintyre, who has fam­ily in the area but has never lived in Corn­wall, moved from Dry­den, ON with her 4-year-old son. She is thank­ful for the colour­ing sup­plies that com­mu­nity mem­bers have given to him, as well as photos with names to help her iden­tify who at­tends her ser­vices.

“It’s been amaz­ing so far. The folks here are just won­der­ful to be with,” said Mcintyre.

Af­ter at­tend­ing univer­sity in Leth­bridge, AB and ob­tain­ing a Bach­e­lor of Arts in Mod­ern Lan­guages (French and Ger­man), Mcintyre achieved two Masters De­grees from the Univer­sity of Saskatchewan in Di­vin­ity and Sa­cred The­ol­ogy.

Nine years ago, Mcintyre was or­dained af­ter a lengthy process. She never imag­ined be­com­ing a Min­is­ter, un­til com­mu­nity mem­bers sug­gested it to her.

“It got me think­ing about it, and I thought ‘you know what, I will try it,’” she said.

Mcintyre has pre­vi­ously worked in Ben­ito, Kenville and Fish River Cree Na­tion, MN. What Mcintyre loves most about her job is meet­ing the peo­ple every­where she goes.

“You get to see the best of peo­ple and you get to hear their sto­ries and what’s im­por­tant to them,” she said. “You get to see the love they share to their fam­i­lies. Some­times you see the worst in peo­ple too. But you see them try­ing hard.”

Mcintyre is look­ing for­ward to meet­ing mem­bers of the com­mu­nity and part­ners of the church.

“I’m re­ally in­spired by the vi­sion that this com­mu­nity of faith has, which is to help build a city where no one jour­neys alone,” she said.

Re­cently she en­joyed meet­ing with the Corn­wall In­ter­faith Part­ner­ship and learn­ing more about what is of­fered lo­cally.

On Fri­day, Sept. 21, the Corn­wall In­ter­faith Part­ner­ship will hold an event at Knox-st. Paul’s from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in hon­our of United Nations International Peace Day.
