About Fr Keith Joyce
Dedicated in service
Keith has been the parish priest at St Paul’s since March 2014. Just prior to that he had served as the Dean of the Diocese of Fredericton and of Christ Church Cathedral in Fredericton, NB. He had arrived there after serving in St Paul’s, Hampton, NB which was preceded by being the rector of St Paul’s, Knowlton in Québec. And uniquely, before going to Knowlton he had started off in his first parish which was St Paul’s, Brighton along with St George’s, Wooler which was then part of the parish. Ordained ministry started at the Church of the Messiah in Toronto where he served his curacy for just under two years.
As the son of missionary parents, Keith had the opportunity to live and attend schools in Lebanon, India and one of the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dubia). Keith is married to Elinor who is a happily retired French Immersion teacher. They were married not long after they had both completed their undergraduate degrees at U of T. Seminary came a couple of years later, at Trinity College, at the same university.
Keith and Elinor have three children: Caitlin in Alberta with her husband Josh Bangsund and three of their grandchildren, Jessica in New Brunswick with her husband Christian Gowan and the other two of their grandchildren, and Alastair in British Columbia with his new wife Laura Haley. One of the joys of being in Brighton is that it is easier to get to far-flung family with Toronto’s Pearson Airport being relatively close by.
