Welcoming Pam as Associate Rector!

Our Rector, Andrew, announced the following at last Sunday’s Vestry meeting:

I have one special announcement I’m excited to make: For nearly five years, I’ve had the privilege of working side-by-side with two of the finest priests in the country, Liska Stefko and Pamela Rayment. Across the Diocese, our clergy team is unique in learning and leading from a place of shared leadership, mutuality, and respect. This fellowship of three has been transformative for the three of us personally, for our parish, and - over the past few years - others in the wider church have begun to notice how we do things differently.

In April 2021, Pam was named Regional Dean of the Eglinton Deanery - quite likely the first ever non-Incumbent appointed to this role in our Diocese. In April 2022 the three of us were invited to address the recent cohort of new ordinands on the topic of “Leading & building teams.” In Fall 2022, Pamela & I were tasked with sifting through the verbatim feedback of all the clergy in the Diocese - part of the deep listening of our Cast the Net Diocesan visioning process. In November 2023, I was named a Canon because of these academic and theological contributions to the Cast The Net process, and for our innovative and creative understanding of shared ministry leadership in parish teams. 

As another stepping stone on this journey, I’m thrilled to announce that the Diocesan Bishop has appointed Pamela to a new leadership role at St. Clement’s: Associate Rector. 

Quite organically over the past 18 months, Pam has stepped into greater leadership responsibility at St. Clement’s, including joining our Wardens’ table, and offering high-level strategic and operational leadership to our parish.

Pam’s new title - the first of its kind in our Diocese -  reflects the skilled and dynamic team we are blessed to have at St. Clement’s. The title also reflects the way the three of us have been leading for some time now.

“Where one alone would be overcome, two will put up resistance; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”  (Ecclesiastes 4:12)

Please join me in giving thanks to God and congratulating Pam!
