Lay Readers’ Conference Workshop Leader The Rev. Canon Dr. Judy Rois
Judy Rois, a native Calgarian, holds a Master of Divinity from Wycliffe College, Toronto, a Master of Theology from Trinity College, Toronto, and a Doctor of Ministry in Homiletics from Seabury Western in Chicago.  She has served many parishes in the Diocese of Toronto including being Vicar of St. James’ Cathedral and Rector of Christ Church, Deer Park. In 2011, she was appointed Executive Director of The Anglican Foundation of Canada. As Adjunct Professor of Homiletics at Trinity College in the Toronto School of Theology, her goal is enabling others “to make real the mystery of the living God in ways that are inspiring, challenging, thought-provoking, puzzling, and interesting”. Her doctoral thesis addressed ways in which today’s preacher can communicate sacred stories in an age of increasing biblical illiteracy. This workshop will explore fresh ways of communicating the faith and making something happen for people in the pews.
