Incumbent: The Rev. Ray Dobson
Reverend Ray Dobson studied at Founder’s College, York University (Bachelor of Arts), Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto (Therapeutic Family Mediation Certificate), and Wycliffe College, University of Toronto (Master of Divinity).
In 1999, he was appointed the Incumbent for a congregation of three Anglican churches:
Christ Church, Batteau
St. Paul’s, Singhampton, and
Church of the Redeemer, Duntroon
In 2017, these three churches amalgamated. Area Bishop Peter Fenty appointed Reverend Ray to be the Incumbent of the newly amalgamated parish, Holy Trinity Clearview.
In addition to serving as Holy Trinity Clearview’s full time priest, Reverend Ray serves as a volunteer chaplain for Collingwood Nursing Home, Sunset Manor long-term care home, and serves as the on call volunteer chaplain for Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.
Among his many interests are theology and studies of the ancient Church, repairs maintenance, woodworking, metal working, and anything mechanical.
“As we struggle faithfully with whatever God places before us, we have the opportunity to mature in the realization of who we are, Whose we are, and that what we do is ultimately all about God and our neighbors.” -Rev Ray
