The Reverend Robert Ross was first appointed as our interim Priest-in-Charge in July 2016. He has continued in this position on an annually renewed basis.
Rob received his theological education at Trinity College, Toronto, and was ordained deacon and then priest in 1981. He has served in parishes in Kelowna, BC, as well as Elmvale and Toronto, Ontario. After 10 years of full-time parish ministry, he became a high school teacher with the Toronto Board of Education (teaching English, Business Studies, Co-operative Education, and Guidance). He was Head of Business Administration at Central Commerce Collegiate for several years, and later Curriculum Leader (Head Teacher) at Contact Alternative School in downtown Toronto. During his teaching career, Rob continued to work as a part-time associate priest at St. Thomas’ Church, Huron Street, Toronto. In 2010, after a twenty-four year association with St Thomas’s, Toronto, he retired and moved, with his spouse and their cat and fox terrier, to the idyllic village of Millbrook, Ontario.
In the larger community, Rob is Chair of the Municipal Revitalization and Heritage Advisory Committee of the Township of Cavan Monaghan. He is also Vice-Chair of the Millbrook Non-Profit Housing Corporation (known as “the Manor”).
He has no serious hobbies, other than reading, travel and terriers, so is thankful for the opportunity to continue to work in parish ministry.
