Fr Geoff joined St. Simon’s in August 2016 and was made Incumbent of the newly amalgamated parish of St. Peter and St. Simon’s on June 16, 2017.
After studying Divinity at Trinity College, Geoff was ordained a deacon in May 2000 and was both Assistant Curate and Associate Priest at St. Clement’s, Eglinton.
In 2004 Geoff went to St. Joseph of Nazareth in Brampton, a dynamic multicultural parish, a community which he says “lives the gospel in a dynamic and joyful way.”
In 2010 he moved to the historic St. John’s Norway in the east end of Toronto, where he worked with the parish to re-invigorate the music ministry and the Church School.
Geoff was for many years a chorister at St. James Cathedral and he earned a Bachelor of Music from the University of Toronto. He serves as the Liturgical Officer for York-Scarborough and sits on the Postulancy committee, identifying the next generation of priests in the diocese.
Geoff has a passion for classical Anglican worship, vibrant church music, and the enthusiasm to minister in the heart of the city, in a busy time and in a busy world. He is delighted to serve at St. Peter and St. Simon’s during this exciting time in our parish and our neighbourhood.
