About Patricia

I have a passion for creating ceremonies that are authentic and meaningful and fit with where people are at. My interest started in 2005 after the very positive feedback to our own wedding ceremony which we put together ourselves,. As a OneSpirit Interfaith Minister, I am committed to finding ways that allow you to express and connect with what you believe most deeply, at the times you when need it most.

To this work, I bring over 20 years of experience of gathering people to create innovative celebrations together, through my work in young adult and family ministry. I have studied theology, economics, and nonprofit management, and have worked in the nonprofit sector for over 15 years in leadership roles, including as manager of intercultural centre, and as lecturer in nonprofit economics. I also bring a diploma in speech and drama, and a love of creating and holding a space for people to feel connected..

 

Testimonials

"The wedding ceremony Patricia led was beautifully refreshing in its simplicity. While being true to the couple’s religious beliefs, it also had a modern twist and a wonderful blend of inclusive singing, well-chosen short readings and involvement of family. The beautiful a cappella singing by the bride and groom set a very romantic scene where one felt graced to be an honoured witness". - Fionnuala

"I have had the privilege of joining a number of events where Patricia was one of the organizers: at Advent and Pentecost. These were outdoor events involving adults and children. They were creative, engaging and bonding. More recently I have seen Patricia contribute to an Easter and a Pentecost ceremony indoors and online due to COVID. Again warm and memorable ceremonies". - Greg

"I have attended with my kids several of reflective walks and online sessions that Patricia has been centrally involved in organising. She always manage to set a gracious atmosphere, through a gorgeous welcome and sensitive listening. She can achieve amazing contributions from young and old, rooted in each individual’s own perspective; heart rending and incredibly uplifting to experience, within which, she seamlessly weaves a powerful analysis that stays in the mind". - Maureen
