Introducing Our New Pastoral Care Coordinator

From Andre: It’s my pleasure to introduce myself as the new Pastoral Care Coordinator here at First UU Winnipeg. In addition to my role at First UU, I am a Spiritual Care Practitioner at the Grace Hospital. I come to First UU after eight years working in various Christian churches around Winnipeg in different capacities. When it comes to Spiritual Care, my passion and skill set is in the facilitation of storytelling, and connecting stories from the past with feelings in the present.

I am an avid runner, reader, coffee drinker, and cat dad of three boys – Romeo, Dorito, and Willow.  My wife Nicole and I have been married for five years.  I hope to be in-service on October 22 and to meet many of you who are reading this now.
