Pamela Yarrow is a (just recently!) retired Anglican priest and native Montrealer, now a new resident in the nation’s capital. Pamela most recently served as Incumbent of St. Barnabas Church, in Pierrefonds, Quebec, as well as Archdeacon of St. Lawrence, i.e. responsible for all the Anglican parishes on the West Island of Montreal. Since age 10, when denied membership in the exclusively men and boys choir at her local church, Pamela has been committed to advocacy both for women and for change from within (male-dominated) institutions. In her 30 years in ministry, in addition to participating in numerous Diocesan committees, Pamela also served as spiritual leader and pastor in varied congregations in the north, south, and Eastern Townships areas of the Diocese of Montreal. In all congregations, Pamela was the first woman priest appointed to that job – a unique and evolving dynamic over the years! Educated primarily at McGill University, with Masters Degrees in both Sacred Theology and Education (Educational Psychology), Pamela also worked for several years in editing and communications for a (secular) family services agency.
