Rev. John Firmston as Interim Priest

St. Martin's is pleased to introduce Rev. John Firmston as our interim priest until we complete the canonical process and have a new incumbent in place.

John was born and raised in Calgary Alberta and graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Psychology major. After working for a couple of years as a child care worker, John was moved by the Spirit to begin the discernment process which would eventually lead him into the ordained ministry. But it would prove to be a slowly unfolding process that would take him through studies in education and several years as a public school teacher and guidance counsellor. Finally, after completing a Master of Divinity program at Huron University College in London Ontario, John was ordained, first to the diaconate, and on his 40 th birthday in 1988, to the priesthood.

John has served in ministry in the Diocese of Calgary, the Diocese of Kootenay, and for the past 14 years, here in the Diocese of New Westminster. Most recently, he was incumbent at St. Barnabas Parish in New Westminster.

Although John officially retired from full-time ministry in August of 2013, he is happy to return to parish work here at St. Martin’s.
