UPDATE:  Good news - things are happening!  Rev. Vernon and his partner will be arriving on Tuesday, May 7th.  Stay tuned for more information on an upcoming celebration of their arrival.


We are very pleased to announce that Bishop Anna Greenwood-Lee has appointed Vernon Foster as incumbent of St. Paul, Nanaimo. Rev Vernon joins us in May 2024.

Vernon was ordained in 2006 and comes to us from South Africa after having served as rector of two Anglican parishes for almost two decades and recently as chaplain at St. Mary’s Diocesan School for Girls in Pretoria, South Africa. 

Our St. Paul family, and the community of Nanaimo, look forward to welcoming Rev Vernon as our new Priest!
