Stories From the Front Lines of Ceremony: The Work of Lay Chaplains

The Lay Chaplains share stories and lessons working with couples, families and friends at times of transition, creating rites of passage.

Cheryl Amundsen has been a member of UCV since 1998 and has just finished her first year as a lay chaplain. She is a recently retired Professor Emerita at Simon Fraser University.

Louise Bunn is a long-time member of UCV and is beginning her 3rd year as a lay chaplain.  She is also involved with the Youth Group and the Earth Spirit Council.

Katherine Roback was a Lay Chaplain for 7 and a half years. It has been the greatest honour and privilege to serve families at times of transition, and to create with them rites of passage that are beautiful, personal, and responsive to their values and beliefs. Now she chairs the Lay Chaplaincy committee, using her experience in  support of this wonderful work.

Laureen joined UCV in 2017 and became a lay Chaplain in 2018.  She is an engineering technologist by day, an instructor at BCIT by night and an occasional photographer, walker, and knitter in her free time.
