We welcome our new incumbent The Rev'd Anthony Bassett. Over the next few weeks we'll have his bio up on this page.


The Rev'd Canon Cheryl Palmer became Director of Cemetery Ministries at St. John's in 2012 after spending 16 years, first as Associate Priest and then as Incumbent, at St. Clement's Church in North Toronto. Before that, she was Anglican Chaplain at the Hospital for Sick Children, while serving as Honorary Assistant at Christ Church, Deer Park. She was Associate Priest at St. Stephen's, Downsview, and Assistant Curate at St. John's Church, Ancaster (Diocese of Niagara). Canon Palmer is a graduate of Queen's University and the Faculty of Divinity, Trinity College, Toronto (MDiv). She has served on numerous diocesan committees, including, recently, the Postulancy Committee, which assists the Bishop in selecting candidates for ordination. She has also been a facilitator for Fresh Start, a diocesan program supporting new incumbents in the critical transitional period of ministry at a new parish.
