Since Molly left two and a half months ago, the wardens and I have talked about a new Associate for CCDP. However, it is clear to us that a new person will not likely be available until sometime in the spring. To bridge that gap, I have invited PJ Carefoote to be our guest preacher for a few months.
The Reverend Pearce J. (PJ) Carefoote was born and raised in Toronto, and was ordained a priest in 1988. He holds a doctorate in Sacred Theology in Church History from the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium and a Master of Information Studies from the University of Toronto. He is Head of the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, University of Toronto, and is the author of Forbidden Fruit: Banned, Censored and Challenged Books from Dante to Harry Potter and A Confusion of Printers: The Role of Print in the English Reformation. He also serves as honorary assistant priest at St James’ Cathedral and St George’s-on-the-Hill, Etobicoke.
PJ will preach once a month until such time as we have a new Associate appointed. His first Sunday with us will be January 31st. On behalf of all of us, I welcome PJ to CCDP.
