Avid readers of the Mustard Seed will remember that in the summer of 2021, the Tri-Valley Parish hosted a theological student, Lt Jacob Friesen. He served for three months in the parish, assisting the Rector in worship and getting to know the parish in preparation for a potential curacy in the Diocese of Brandon following the completion of his Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree from Trinity College, Toronto in May of 2022. 

Since his virtual first placement in the Diocese, Jacob has completed his M.Div. with a second placement at St. Michael and All Angels’, Toronto under the Ven. Paul Feheley as well as his basic military officers’ training course at St. Jean, Quebec this past summer, where he was the pennant bearer for his platoon at his graduation parade.

He has now arrived (alongside his fiancée Sam) in the Diocese of Brandon, and Jacob will serve in the Diocese as the Assistant Curate at the Cathedral under the watchful eye of the Very Rev’d Don Bernhardt TSSF.  

At the time of publication in September, a date for Jacob’s ordination to the diaconate has not been set, but God willing, this will happen in short order. More to come.

Welcome to the Diocese of Brandon, Jacob and Sam! We’re absolutely thrilled that you’re here with us.
