Welcome Dyanne!

We are pleased to welcome our new Minister, Dyanne Marlock, to the pulpit.

I am a child of God who loves Creation. I enjoy walking along the ocean and hearing the crashing of the waves. I enjoy walking our dogs late in the evening and admiring stars in the sky. Having three dogs keeps life interesting. I enjoy tea and am a collector of tea tins and teapots. Reading has always been a favourite pastime of mine. Over the years I have earned a degree in Microbiology and Immunology, a diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology, and worked for thirty years as a Medical Laboratory Technologist. Through the decades, attending a United Church has been a constant activity – whether in London, ON, Whitby, Scarborough, North York, or Newmarket.

My journey in ministry began in February 2016. Discernment and enrollment in Centre for Christian Studies (CCS) followed. I became a candidate in Diaconal Ministry in the Fall of 2018 and hope to be commissioned in the spring of 2023. For the past 2 years, since September 2019, I have had the pleasure of being the minister at Palgrave United Church. I am grateful that my husband of 26 years and our adult children (two) are supportive of my decision to journey on the road of ministry.

I am looking forward to worshipping with and leading this faith community. 

May your days be filled with blessings!

Pastor Dyanne Marlok
