Susanna

The Ministry Team at St Paul's is lead by the Very Rev'd Susanna Pain, who was installed as the first female Dean of the Cathedral in September 2016.  The Rev'd Nikolai Blaskow, Rev'd Brian Norris,  Rev'd Thelma Langshaw, Rev'd Heather Toms, Rev'd Lyn Williams and Rev'd Kate Campbell support the ministry of the Cathedral in a variety of ways.  We have a team of Lay Readers that support the ministry of the Cathedral Parish in Sale, Golden Beach, Loch Sport, and Kilmany.

 

 DSC7580 webSusanna came to St Paul's in September 2016 as dean.

Susanna studied Theology at St Mark's in Canberra and was ordained Deacon in Canberra in 1989, and priest in Adelaide in 1992.

Before ordination, Susanna worked as a social worker in Adoptions and Foster Care, with Migrants and Refugees, and in Parish Community Development, and Hospital Social Work.

She has spent almost 26 years as a parish priest in rural and suburban Australia, in Adelaide, Sydney, Cowra and Canberra, and has also worked as industrial chaplain and university chaplain. She was Rector of the vibrant Holy Covenant Anglican Church in Canberra for nine years, where she facilitated employing a Holistic Care Nurse, Youth Worker, and Children's Worker, and setting up a Day Hospice.

In 2015-2016 she worked part-time at The Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, Charles Sturt University, as Associate Director, Liturgy, The Arts and Spiritual Care, alongside her work in spiritual direction, leading Christian Meditation, supervision and running retreats, and worshipping with The Celebration Community in Karrabar, Queanbeyan.

All her work is undergirded by prayer.

She is passionate about Jesus, who says: 'I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.' (John 10:10)

She is married to Nikolai and enjoys playing with grandchildren Izzy, Reuben, Isaac and Jerry, walking in the bush, reading and sharing meals with friends.

Nikolai is an ordained Anglican Priest currently working as Head of Religious and Values Education at Gippsland Grammar School and assistant Chaplain. He is also Honorary Priest at the Cathedral. He has  embarked on a PhD with Bangor University in Wales in the Faculty of Philosophy and Religion.

This font was brought from the old St Paul's church, and has been moved to different places around the cathedral.
LOOK UP! Did you know the roof is designed like an upside down boat, and the 'nave' where people sit, comes from the same word as naval?
This cathedral was the second 'St Paul's' Church built in Sale. It is the 'mother church' of the Anglican Diocese of Gippsland.
