After ordination in 1993, Paul served the people of St. Clement’s Mission on the Lower North Shore of Quebec and lived in Mutton Bay. At one time the territory covered was 350 km of coast line with little or no roads, and he travelled by plane, helicopter, quad, snow-mobile, truck, outboard and cargo ferry to care for people all along the coast.

The Reverend Deacon Maylanne Maybee
Maylanne Maybee is the Principal of the Centre for Christian Studies here in Winnipeg. She brings a lifelong passion for social justice and a deep understanding and lived experience of servant ministry. Educated at Trinity College, The University of Toronto and Oxford University, her more recent studies have focused on racial justice and reconciliation, just and responsible tourism in Israel and the Palestinian Territories, transformational leadership, and conflict mediation.
An Anglican deacon for over thirty years, Maylanne has worked to promote the renewal of the diaconate as a distinct order and ministry within the Anglican Church. In mentoring a growing body of Anglican deacons, she has developed her own capacities as a theologian particularly in the areas of ecclesiology and mission. Maylanne also has several publications to her credit, including All Who Minister: New Ways of Serving God’s People, a collection of case studies of innovative models of ministry.
Prior to her appointment at the Centre, Maylanne worked for a decade and a half for the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, first as Co-ordinator, Mission and Justice Education and then as Co-ordinator for Ecojustice Networks. Earlier, she worked for the Diocese of Toronto as Co-ordinator for Diaconal Ministry, as Deacon in charge, St. Matthias, Parkdale (Toronto), and for the Canadian Non-Profit Housing Foundation as Founding Executive Director; with the Urban Core Support Network as Staff Co-ordinator, and with the Parkdale Community Ministry as Co-ordinator. She also worked as a chaplain and educator at a private girls’ school in Oakville.
Maylanne’s work in the church and community is testimony to the centrality of her commitment to social justice. Her skills as an educator have been employed to engage others in the work of justice and mission. Her involvements have fostered her own analytical thinking from a feminist and liberationist perspective. She brings vision for future directions, gifts as an educator and communicator, and solid administrative and management experience. Much of her work has been ecumenical including her leadership experience and collaborative involvement with the United Church of Canada. Thus she has a solid grounding in the ethos and polity of both denominations which should serve the Centre well. In addition to looking ahead, Maylanne can also offer some historical perspective on the Centre, having served as a Co-Chair of Council at the time the Centre’s moved to Winnipeg in 1998.
