Bishop Todd Townshend appoints The Reverend Patty Dobbs Luxton as the rector of St. Thomas’, St. Thomas effective February 15, 2022.
John Lutman, our Archivist at the Diocese of Huron Archives will be retiring at the end of this year on December 31, 2021.
John joined us in 2010 and has managed the vast store of records housed at the Archives as well as assisted those seeking to research historical information.
Located at the Huron University College, the Archives houses the records of baptisms, confirmations, marriages and funerals of Anglicans across the Diocese from as far back as the early 1800s. In addition, other historical artifacts such as architectural drawings, maps and church history are carefully maintained and kept preserved by John and his team.
His extensive knowledge of our church's history will be missed by all throughout the Diocese of Huron. Please join us all in thanking and congratulating John for his dedicated service to his Church and its people here over the years. John will be honored at Synod in May.
