The Rev. Canon Edward Vaughan served in several parishes in Quebec and Ontario during his ministry. He retired to the Annapolis Valley with his wife Janet. Ed has an active ministry in the Parish of Wilmot, including celebrating and preaching, the treasurer of St. Joseph’s Men’s Guild, and pastoral care coverage when the rector is away. For six years he offered a weekly bible study for parishioners. Ed has a terrific sense of humour, and can often be heard closing gatherings with a little humorous story he found somewhere in his travels. On Sunday, May 31 we celebrated with Fr. Ed on 50 years in priestly ministry.
