Colleen Kelly

I have been an active parishioner of St. John the Divine for 37 years. With a background education in accounting and data processing in high school and college, I was a programmer on fixed assets and accounts receivable applications in a manufacturing setting. As a systems analyst/project leader, I worked on payroll and case costing applications for local hospitals. I was treasurer for St. John the Divine Catholic Women’s league for several years. Retired in 2018, I have found there is no shortage of interesting activities in which to participate.


Michelle Gilpin

My husband, Paul, and I have been parishioners at St. George for over 20 years. I am a child psychologist and have worked in a variety of settings, including children's rehabilitation and school boards. I currently run a private practice. We have two grown daughters, a son-in-law, and a very special granddaughter. I joined the Finance Committee because I believe in the strength and courage of our faith community. Springbank Catholic Family of Parishes is my family and home. I am committed to being a part of helping our parish Family thrive and grow through compassion, hope, and in the spirit of discipleship. I will strive to serve with gratitude and humility.


Eileen Grainger

My husband, David, and I have been parishioners at St. George for approximately four years, after relocating to our home in the south of London. Formally parishioners of St. Michael's Parish, we relocated from Toronto to London in 1992. I have a Master’s degree in Health Administration and have been in various senior administrative positions at hospitals and at Western University. I have strong administrative, financial, and human resources skills and served on the Finance Committee at St. Peter’s Cathedral. David and I like to call ourselves “dual citizens” (I am Catholic, and he belongs to the United Church of Canada). We have been married for 49 years and attend both churches!  I am committed to being part of the Finance Committee to help our parish Family through these difficult financial times.


Jennifer Horvat

I have attended St. John the Divine since 1998. My husband and I have two children, both currently pursuing post-secondary education. Some parishioners may recognize me from my many years as a lector. I am a CPA CGA, and currently lead the Finance Department of a local health care organization. Parish communities of many denominations are facing unprecedented challenges, and it will take the strength and wisdom of many to discern the way forward. As a volunteer on the Springbank Catholic Family of Parishes Finance Committee, I hope to lend support to our parish Family in this important mission.
