The Saint Augustine of Canterbury
Parish Leadership Team
The Reverend Megan Jull, Priest-in-Charge
Megan came to Saint Augustine’s in mid-February 2018. She and her family, husband Chris Jull and three children, Matthew (10), Andrew (almost 9) and Abigail (5) are delighted with the appointment as Priest-in-Charge at St Augustine’s of Canterbury.
Megan grew up in the suburbs of Toronto and moved downtown to attend Trinity College, U of T, as both an undergraduate (B.A. Religious Studies and English 2002) and a Divinity student (M.Div 2005). Shortly after the birth of their first child, Megan and family moved to Pickering, ON.
Megan has served a number of parishes in both the Diocese of Toronto and the Diocese of Quebec, in pastoral lay ministry, children and youth ministry, and as a cleric. In the Diocese of Toronto, Megan has served the parishes of the Church of the Messiah, St. Thomas’ Brooklin, All Saints’ Kingsway, and the Church of the Redeemer. Megan was ordained deacon and priest in 2014.
Megan is passionate about preaching, creative liturgy, and inclusion of all ages and new Christians in the life of the Church. Megan is inspired by the way that St. Augustine’s places the Eucharist at the heart of their ministry and is eager to explore ways in which the parish might continue to connect with the surrounding neighbourhood and continue to grow in the life of faith.
