Pat moved to Victoria from Saskatchewan after her retirement from teaching, which she considered her vocation, not just a career. Her passion was working with at-risk students, often those considered to be on the fringes of society. It was in this setting where she really learned the importance of building relationship and trust. It was also where her awareness of and passion for social justice began. Discovering the spiritual community here at CBUC has been the gift that allows her to continue in her own faith journey as well as supporting children, youth and families in their unique journeys.
