posted Oct 23, 2017, 2:27 PM by Kathy Carr
Rev. Chris Evetts and Audrey his wife of three years motored from their home area of St. Thomas and London, Ontario to Brandon in mid June. He had completed his Bac­helor of Arts and Master of Divinity degrees at Huron University College in London and was ordained at Brandon’s St. Matthews Cathedral Church in late June.
He had accepted a position with the Assiniboine Valley Anglican parish which involved four churches, St. Pauls in MacGregor, St. Agnes at Carberry, St. Pauls in Wawanesa and St. Marys at Brandon. Time management is key to Rev. Evetts life who lives in the rectory at Carberry. He conducts services at 9:00 a.m. in the second and fourth Sunday of the month in St. Agnes Church at Carberry.
Rev. Chris brings a variety of experiences to his new assignment. He served for eight months in the complex care unit at the Veterans (Parkwood) Hospital in London and was the correctional officer at the Elgin Middlesex Detention Centre for twelve years. Another two years service was devoted to Army Reserves specializing as a combat engineer, police foundation, corporate investigation and correction.
Two days, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, are spent in Brandon for office administration and hospital visitations.
Two weeks at the Vatican in Rome had a profound influence in the power, presence and direction in Chris’ life.
Audrey Evetts left a very good position in the pathology department at University Hospital in London.
The Evetts enjoy movies (no horror), hikes, drives, and the friendly folks in their parish. Special thanks are extended to the Carberry ministerial group and Assiniboine Valley Regional ministry for their hospitality and warm welcome to their new home on the prairies.
