I have lived in Mississauga for over 35 years, near the Square One area with my husband and our lovable yellow labrador. As an Ordained minister with Clergy Support Memorial Church. I believe a baptism should reflect you and your beliefs regardless of your denomination. I began my spiritual journey over 30 years ago which includes my passion in the study of Zen Buddhism. I enjoy reading books on personal development as well as volunteer my free time with a monk who teaches Qi Gong which all allow to continue in my spiritual growth. Along with my compassion and kindness, I look forward to guiding you in creating the ideal ceremony for your child.

As an Ordained Minister with Clergy Support Memorial Church, I would be honoured to help you realize your vision for a baptism or naming ceremony that conveys all the joy and thrill of your love for your child. I live in Kitchener with my husband Bruce and I am the father of two daughters (and a grandson), and we share our home with the companionship of a dog and two cats. My previous experience as a parish pastor for almost 30 years has provided me with the opportunity to celebrate life celebrations with many families. I am active member of Spectrum and I enjoy dedicating my time to helping the LBGTQ youth and adults to find comfort in their identity. I look forward to the opportunity to work together with you to create a celebration as personal, creative and as fun as you wish it to be.

Baptism Stories

Not being of a religious background, we were not sure how to welcome our son Liam into the spiritual world. Your ceremony and readings fit our family perfectly. The memories will live in our hearts forever. The naming ceremony helped to solidify the amazing extended family our son Liam has. We were very lucky to have found your service. Many thanks for making Liam's day so special.Iggy Greenwoos& Liam Scott
