Ken Waltho

Ken and his wife Marian moved from Fareham, Hampshire, England in 1981 with their two daughters to SE Calgary and some time later built a house in Bragg Creek. Following that, they moved to Okotoks and sought out St. Peter’s as they’ve always been Anglicans and our church became their home.  
Ken is a retired Engineering Technologist, having worked for Fluor, in the oil and gas industry; (a great profession to be retired from, these days).   He loves to travel and has been to many countries including India, Italy, the Caribbean, Mexico, many parts  of the U.S., Spain, the Panama Canal, Nicaragua and most recently cruising (a favorite way to travel), to Rio de Janiero, Brazil.  (He spent part of his school years in Malta!)
Ken loves woodworking and is also quite a handyman and gardener.  He uses his love for these activities, especially the handyman part, to minister in our midst.  You will find him behind the scenes (or when there aren’t a lot of people around) repairing things which need attention, crawling around the attic and clearing away items which can be disposed of from storage areas (like old files, empty boxes, scraps of lumber and other useless paraphernalia. He’s also right-hand man to his wife and is her go to guy when tables and chairs need to be set up for various hospitality functions and food needs to be hauled. He’s one of the people who gathers the offering on Sundays and who removes the cushions at the front.  He’s always willing to help and is exceptionally able.
A favorite favourite Bible verse is Exodus 23:20, “See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.” This must be the place God had in mind and Ken is much appreciated for following His leading!

Gina Cook

Gina came to St. Peter’s in 2009 along with her husband Clayton and their two children. She was interested in remaining Anglican, having grown up in our faith. She and Clayton were also looking for support for their son and daughter who joined Sunday School, Youth Group and the Music Ministry. They have since gained three wonderful granddaughters. And a very special daughter in law!
Clayton owns his own business in the Oil and Gas Industry and travels extensively. This leaves Gina time for involvement in the Ministries of St. Peter’s. She has been Incumbent’s Warden and Parish Council Member, and is currently involved in several other Ministries. She is dependable and particular!
Two years ago Gina felt God’s urging to join the Altar Guild and now is an invaluable assistant to Helen and the others involved. She also helps with food preparation and cleanup for various functions, is a Lay Reader and most recently, became a Eucharistic Assistant. Gina is also the coordinating person for Children’s Ministry and last December organized and produced St. Peter’s Christmas Pageant. It was a huge hit!
She is also the contact person representing St. Peter’s for the Okotoks Food Bank and devotes many hours to this outreach.
Gina has a well-loved Teacup Yorkie named Bailey (who has had many names, but Bailey stuck). When she first came to live with them, Bailey would fit in a shirt pocket. (Or a teacup). At 3 now, she’s not a whole lot bigger!
Gina’s favorite thing to do is to spend time with Clayton! They like to travel, enjoy camping in the summer, and are devoted to their family. She’s been a huge support to her children as they grew to adulthood (and she became a favorite grandmother)!
Gina’s favorite scripture is 1 Corinthians 12:3-5 which says, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud…..”. She and Clayton chose this for their wedding and they both live it out in their daily lives.

Bernard van Blokland

Bernard came to St. Peter’s after emigrating from Holland in 1993 at the time of his marriage to June and has been here ever since. Bernard and June and have one son, Jesse who graduated SAIT in 2015 and is currently employed in Calgary.
As a younger man his passion was technology and computers.  He has worked with computers for over 40 years and the industry is still his love and current business.  Bernard is also an avid notaphilist (one who collects bank notes/paper money). In an interesting twist, he is a Dutchman who loves Thai food and is allergic to cheese!
Bernard provides the visuals at Sunday services as well as maintaining and upgrading St. Peter’s computer systems and network. He is an integral part of the sound ministry, is currently Assistant Rector’s Warden and is a valuable asset on Parish Council. On Sunday mornings he leads us all in cheering for the people who have had birthdays or anniversaries in traditional Dutch fashion.  During the winter months he is a valued member of the team that is responsible for snow removal and sidewalk clearing.
One of Bernard’s favorite pastimes is walking their dog, Jemima (Jemmy) who is an ongoing challenge as Jemmy has a mind of her own!
Bernard has a great love for the people of St. Peter's as evident in his dedication to our church. A prized Bible passage is Jeremiah 29:11 which speaks of His promises; “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

Marion Bowen

Marion came to St. Peter’s in 1997 from Toronto to take a job with Husky Oil but has since retired, giving her more time for the really necessary things which make up senior citizenship!
Marion’s favourite pastime involves music.  She attends concerts, always listens to all types of music and is involved with Dewdney Players filling many roles, whether it be onstage, front of house or behind the scenes.  She is part of a dinner group which has been meeting once a month for several years and enjoys that fellowship – as well as the cooking involved!
She also volunteers her time with the Okotoks Food Bank, working with teams to distribute food to those who call.
At St. Peter’s Marion is a reader, helps lead prayers of the people, is a Sunday School teacher and is also a former Eucharistic Assistant.  Mobility issues put an end to that side of her ministry. She loves our church children and serves them by teaching Sunday School and taking her turn to give the children’s teaching in the service. She is a regular attender and occasional leader of the Wednesday morning bible study in the West Wing. Being a gifted writer, she has also written a number of event debriefs for our church website.
She has tried her hand at lots of arts and crafts but has mastered none, so she says. She loves gardening and napping in her hammock.  These, plus reading, take up a lot of her summer time.  When the snow flies, reading and watching TV are her guilty pleasures.
Marion’s favourite Bible passage is from Mathew 7:1:  Judge not that you not be judged.

Billie Hogan

Billie first came to St. Peter’s in 1987 after her parents, Tim and Peti Webster were married here. Billie returned to the parish about a year after Tim and Peti returned from their time in Chile and Tim became the Incumbent here.
She soon leapt into Ministry within our church family, leading (2 years) and later co- leading the Youth Group for 6 more years until she sensed God calling her into a different facet of His work in our midst. She has, for the past years been co-leading the Children’s Ministry, overseeing as well as teaching Sunday School. Billie has also served on parish council. She is passionate about sharing Jesus with those who don’t know him yet.
Billie is a gifted teacher, working mostly in challenging areas of the city. As of September of last year she has been working in an Elementary School and presently is co-teaching with two young, recently graduated teachers. She enjoys this very much. She is an educational Rockstar!
Billie has a great sense of style and uses her eye for design to create wonderful Greeting cards amongst many other crafts. She is co-Leader of Creative Souls, which meets at St. Peter’s on the third Saturday of each month. She loves to bake and makes extraordinary Christmas goodies!
Billie’s also a cat lover (and a kid person!) She is currently “mom” to “Daisy”, “Herminia” and “Henry” and she is “B” to a myriad of young people. She loves to travel and has been many places – She was born in Inuvik, NWT and has been all across Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Chile, Bolivia, Mexico, Thailand and many parts of the USA. She’s AVID about Christmas and would really like the season to last all year long…..or at the very least, begin in the summer.
Billie has a strong faith and lives by 1 Corinthians 13, which defines what love in action is. Watch her and see!
