The Reverend Michael Perry
416-923-8714, ext. 203
Michael grew up in Toronto, in the Yonge & Lawrence area and attended Little Trinity Anglican, in the Distillery District, where he made some lifelong friendships and a lifelong commitment to Liverpool Football Club.
After studying International Relations at Mount Allison University, he moved to the Champagne region of France and stayed two years in the medieval city of Troyes.
While living in Troyes he discovered the community of Taizé, which welcomes tens of thousands of young people to experience a week following the rhythms of monastic life.
Michael spent two years in Taizé and it was there that he discovered a sense of vocation in working towards reconciliation within the Church and grew into a contemplative prayer practice.
He and his wife, Yvonne, met in Teachers’ College in Ottawa and were married in 2013.
Michael studied theology at Trinity College, Toronto and made many friends, read many books, and wrote many papers. He graduated in Spring of 2019 and was ordained to the transitional diaconate in the Diocese of Toronto. He is delighted to be at St. Peter and St. Simon-the-Apostle, especially as he lives in the parish boundaries.
