The Venerable Charlene Taylor
Rector, Parish of the Good Shepherd, Mount Pearl
I grew up in Foxtrap, Conception Bay South in a family who taught by example what it meant to
love God and neighbour. A family home where all were welcomed and genuine hospitality was
lovingly shared. A cradle Anglican who knew from an early age I was called to ordained ministry.
Who is my neighbour? is a question that influences my ministry and my approach to meeting
people and developing relationships with them. I enjoy travelling and learning from others about
their lives and their stories. Creation allows me to get my hands dirty in my backyard lettuce
patch and flower beds. I have a love for music that stretches over a broad genre and I’ve never
met a chocolate I did not like.
