We are delighted and excited to welcome Rev Michele Lee to serve as Curate at St. Stephen’s and St. Matthew’s for the next three years. Michele has come to the two parishes to continue her training and development in ordained, parochial ministry.
Prior to training for ordination, Michele initially worked in the hotel and hospitality industry in Devon, Cornwall, Whitby and Central London. She then qualified as a Ballroom and Latin American dance teacher, coaching beginners, medallists and student teachers. Latterly she took music and dance into care homes and day centres where she saw a notable improvement in general wellbeing, especially amongst those with dementia. Michele was Pastoral Assistant at St Marylebone Church for the past ten years.
In 2000, Michele joined the chaplaincy team at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, where she has specialized in paediatrics, offering pastoral and spiritual support to parents and children. Michele has recently gained further experience as part of the multi-faith chaplaincy team at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. Michele will be with us part-time as she continues her vital ministry as a chaplain.
Please take every opportunity to introduce yourself and to make Michele feel truly welcome. She is a great gift to us from God.
