THE REV. ANDREA CHRISTENSEN

Andrea was born in Kitchener-Waterloo, and lived in Toronto and Stittsville, Ontario. She has a B.A. (Hons.) in Sociology and Religion from Bishop's University in Lennoxville, and an M. Div. from Wycliffe College in Toronto.
Andrea was ordained in the Diocese of Ottawa in 2001, and began her ministry as Assistant Curate at St. Matthew's in the Glebe, and then Rector of the parish of Fitzroy Harbour. In 2009, she came to the Diocese of Toronto as Associate Priest at the parish of St. Hilda, and Assistant Executive Director of St. Hilda's Towers.
On a personal note, Andrea adores long walks and picnics in the park with her 2-year old son, David, her husband, Ben, and their Golden Retriever, Caleb. Some of Andrea's favourite activities include cooking and wine-tasting with Ben, reading, times of quiet reflection and prayer, travel and new adventures!
Andrea Christensen has served as our Associate Priest in team ministry since September 2014. Effective January 1, 2017, and in light of previous incumbent Canon Kevin Robertson's election as suffragan bishop, Andrea has been appointed as Interim Priest-in-Charge.
