Our Lay Chaplains
Jean is a long-time member of the Lakehead Unitarian Fellowship, joining in 1984 with her partner and their 3 children. She worked as the church administrator for 15 years before moving to Manitoba in 2004 and then returning in 2012. Her strong sense of family, however it may be comprised, and her belief in the importance of community, led her to the Lay Chaplaincy. She will work with you to create a meaningful and memorable service
Brenda comes to Lay Chaplaincy with a passion for the ceremonies that bring meaning to the significant moments of our lives. Her belief in the principles of Unitarian Universalism; particularly the inherent worth and dignity of every person, drew her to active membership in Lakehead Unitarian Fellowship. Her background in rites helps her in creating a service that will respect the desired outcomes of your ceremony. She will work with you to honour your wishes and your values in the creation of an event that will meet your needs.
Heather Morrison is a professional pianist, having held the position of Principal Keyboard with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra for several decades. She is also a lecturer in the Music Department at Lakehead University.
A long-time Unitarian-Universalist, Heather was drawn to the lay chaplaincy by her enjoyment in connecting with people, her love of language, and her awareness of the importance of ceremony at significant times in peoples’ lives.
