Sharon’s Story

Sharon grew up in Kingston and became a French teacher. She attended St John’s Anglican Church where Jim was the priest in charge. Jim shared his love for the Moose Cree, and memories of his ministry in northern Ontario with Sharon. It was through these conversations that Sharon was inspired and called into the ministry. She was ordained in the Diocese of Moosonee where she served in three parishes and as Dean of the Cathedral.  During her time in the north, she visited Moose Factory and St Thomas several times. After she was diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy, Sharon moved back to Kingston to be with her family, receiving care at Providence Manor. Her family is honouring her name through a memorial gift for the restoration of Old St Thomas. Please view this video for her story as told by her brother, Neil, and her father Bill Murdoch
