The Rev. Deacon Elizabeth has been a member of All Saints for over 12 years. For 8 years she was on staff and was involved in a variety of lay ministry roles. While working for All Saints she completed her Master of

In November 2016 she was ordained as a Vocational Deacon. She is licensed to the parishes of All Saints, Cochrane and St. Michael’s, Canmore. She is at All Saints two Sundays a month when she serves as Deacon at the Eucharist, and during the week her diaconal ministry at All Saints involves working with All Saints Family Centre Society both as the Director of Cochrane Wellness Connection and in the Reconciliation Ministry program in Morley. In Morley she offers a grief and loss program and has recently begun a home church that meets Sunday afternoons.
Elizabeth is married to Ross Sargent. She has 4 children and 4 grandchildren and Ross has 4 children and 3 grandchildren. As you can imagine, family plays an important role in their lives, and life is never dull! They enjoy travel and when they are at home feel blessed to live close to the Bow River and the Jumping Pound Creek.
