Description

 

As Chaplains, we jointly share a wealth of perspectives and approaches to our work. Accessing those ideas and resources is another matter, given the often isolated nature of our roles.

 

Our department meets monthly during the school year to bridge the distance between our campuses, offering a point of conversation and reflection on our practice and the shifting contexts in which we find ourselves. Sometimes we focus on how we manage our roles - how do we stay fresh and how do we balance priorities? Other times we turn our attention to what we do - what leads to a student driven experience and what fosters a sense of inclusion?

 

Feel free to drop into our meetings when you're able. Each one hour gathering is formatted as a stand alone discussion. We open with a brief check-in before engaging with the topic of the day. For anyone who wishes to gather ideas on an emergent situation unrelated to the topic, a few of us remain after the hour to offer support. We are, first and foremost, a gathering of colleagues.


About Our Group Facilitator
Currently serving as the Chaplain and Faculty Mentor at St. Michaels University School, Keven Fletcher divides his time between public speaking, process facilitation, and exploring life choices with staff and students. The 1,000 strong community draws from five continents and twenty-five countries. As an ordained minister within the United Church of Canada, his former role centered on congregational ministry in the midst of crisis. Earlier in his career, Keven worked with an organizational change and development firm, specializing in values identification and organizational culture within both the private and public sectors. Alongside these endeavors, Keven headed a non-profit that promoted discussion on ethics within the corporate community, including the establishment of a regional ethics award in conjunction with the country’s largest credit union. He also served on the boards of outreach societies that focused on providing food, shelter, and services to members of the street community. An avid teller of wisdom stories, Keven drew his favorites together to form the core of a novel, When It Matters Most, and investigated the ethical implications in a paper, 'Cultural Appropriation and the Telling of Wisdom Stories.'

 

Keven lives in Victoria, British Columbia with his amazingly resilient wife of over 25 years. Their daughter is currently completing another Master’s in Scotland, causing him moments of intense jealousy. He copes by commuting on his bike, playing with his camera, and enjoying great food with friends.
