Our New Associate Priest


Posted on July 12, 2019

 
On September 1, we welcome The Rev. Karen Isaacs as our new Associate Priest. The Rev. Karen Isaacs is a graduate of Wycliffe College at the Toronto School of Theology (M.T.S., C.A.S.). She was ordained a priest in 2018, most recently serving in the amalgamated parish of St. Mary and St. Martha. 
 
Karen hails from beautiful rural Manitoba originally. After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics from the University of Manitoba, she spent some time serving in overseas missions in various parts of Africa and Europe before finally landing in Toronto in 2010 to study theology. After graduation Karen worked as Assistant to the Bishop of York-Scarborough while she pursued a call to ordained ministry. In the priesthood she has discovered the deep joy that comes with serving where God has called her.
 
In her spare time Karen enjoys reading, cycling, board games, and traveling, as well as the companionship of her fish Atticus and her cat Loki. She is a proud aunt to eight wonderful ‘niblings’ (six nieces, two nephews).
 
Karen’s passions in ministry are preaching, pastoring, and helping people of all ages grow in their walk with Jesus. She is excited to be a part of the St. Paul’s team.
