The Reverend Paul Lampman - Rector
Born in Simcoe, Ontario, Paul was raised in Port Dover and Vittoria on the north shore of Lake Erie amid rolling hills, green pastures, excellent trout streams and rich farmland. Paul studied Philosophy and Classics (B.A. Trent ’87), French (C.F.L.S. Laval ’89), Theology at McGill (B.Th.,’91, S.T.M ‘92, M.Div. ’93) and received his Private Pilot License ’96. Paul taught New Testament Greek and studied Eucharistic Ecclesiology: the Church as Communion in the graduate programme at Mount Angel Abbey Seminary, St Benedict Oregon; and he taught Ecclesiology at St John’s College, U of M. Studies since then have been in the areas of mental health and counseling. Paul holds a brown belt in a traditional form of karate.
Paul has served in the following churches: Good Shepherd, Montreal; St. George’s Place du Canada, Christ Church Cathedral Montreal; Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Quebec, QC; the Greater Parish of Gaspe and the Magdelan Islands; St John’s College Chapel and now St Luke’s.
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. Heather and Paul were married in 1994 and they moved to the Parish of New Carlisle on the Gaspe coast in 1996. Paul helped to raise $1.5 M to redo the foundation and develop a parish hall for the church there. In 2003 the family moved to Winnipeg where Paul served as Chaplain and Dean of Residence at St John’s College, U of M. Since July of 2010, St Luke’s has been home. Paul and Heather are proud parents of three children (Luke, Gabriella, and James).
The Reverend Dwight Rutherford
Born in Winnipeg, Dwight grew up in the Westwood area, the oldest of two boys. He received a B.A. (Hons) in History and Political Science, from the University of Winnipeg (1979), followed by a M.P.A. in 1981 from both the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg. From 1982 to 1996, he worked for Government Services and Public Works Canada in the Real Property Division in Ottawa, Edmonton and Winnipeg. His substantive work was project management for lease acquisition of office space for federal tenants, along with disposal of surplus federal properties.
In 1996, he became a candidate for ministry from McClure United Church, in Winnipeg. In that same year, he entered Emmanuel College at the University of Toronto, and, in 1999, was awarded the M.Div., and later would complete a S.T.M., at the University of Winnipeg (2002). In 1999, he was ordained into the ministry of the United Church of Canada. He served the pastoral charges of Binscarth-Foxwarren (1999–2008), Reston Pipestone (2008–2015), Gordon King Memorial (2015–2017) and Kirkfield Park United Churches in Winnipeg (2015–2018).
He was involved in the courts of the United Church at General Council, Conference and Presbytery levels, doing amongst other things property work, pastoral charge supervision, and a term as Chair of the former Assiniboine Presbytery. In the community he has served on the Board of Regents of the University of Winnipeg and on the Alumni Association of the University of Winnipeg, including a term as President. He was founding Chair, Russell and Area Food Connections; Chair, Parkland Linc, Russell; Chair, Museum Board, Binscarth; and on RHA Committees for Crisis Intervention, Long Term and Palliative Care including the Crisis Intervention Team at the Russell Hospital.
After much prayer and thought, he became an Anglican, being part of St. Chad’s Anglican Church, which worshipped in the former Kirkfield Park United Church building. On November 23, 2019, he was ordained a transitional deacon, in the Diocese of Rupert’s Land and was placed as a Deacon at the Parish Church of St. Luke. He was ordained to the priesthood in January 2020.
