Susan Torris

SusanT1Susan was born and raised in Calgary and first moved to Okotoks in 1974.  Susan adores her 4 children, 3 step children and 10 grandchildren. Susan has been a parish member since 1988 joining in the original St. Peter’s building in Olde Towne Okotoks.  She has been St. Peter’s Administrator since 1993.  Susan has amassed a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience over the past quarter century!

She is the best networker not only because of her long-standing term as Administrator but also because she is the one contact for anyone in the parish to get linked with town resources.  People call daily for personal requests, family needs, emergency relief, et al.  Susan tries to accommodate everyone’s needs and knows Okotoks well enough to link each need to a means.  She also manages all the requirements for each Sunday service such as Bible readers, lay servers, children’s pre Sunday-school instructors and the ever-present weekly bulletin.

Producing St. Peter’s weekly church service bulletin is what most people know Susan for first.  There is a very long list of responsibilities in her position which some people might not realize.  Record keeping and archiving require a tremendous amount of detailed work from Susan in maintaining professional parish records - births, baptisms, weddings, deaths.  Susan thoroughly enjoys planning and organizing a variety of traditional church gatherings – Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving.  She also puts her special touches on many outreach and social parish occasions such as summer bbq’s, Stampede breakfasts, Christmas dinners, weddings, bake sales, Remembrance days and birthdays.

All groups/organizations using the building must go through Susan who   co-ordinates all activities in St. Peter’s facilities.  There have been countless different events held in the church from many one-time conferences to several continuing year-round weekly groups which requires detailed organizing and managing using Susan’s unique style. Susan has hosted home groups in the past, currently sings in the choir and continues to keep St. Peter’s running smoothly!

Last but far from least, Susan is married to Neil Torris.
