Janet Griffith Clarke collated as the Archdeacon of Brant/Norfolk and Oxford

Bishop Robert Bennett collated the Ven. Janet Griffith Clarke as archdeacon of Brant/Norfolk and Oxford deaneries on Feb. 1, at Grace Church, Brantford. 

Archdeacon Janet Griffith Clarke is the rector of the Brantford Regional Ministries. She was ordained in Huron in 2000 and appointed to the position of director of Human Resources in the Huron Synod Office. She also served in two interim parish positions and spent five years as Honorary Associate at Church of the Ascension in London (then known as East London Anglican Ministries). 

In 2007 she left Huron to accept the position of Vicar General and Executive Archdeacon (and director of Human Resources) in the Diocese of Montreal. She was appointed territorial archdeacon on an interim basis on three occasions and served as commissary for a period of six months.
