After serving nearly 15 years as Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church and now retired, the Rev. Linda Spiers has been appointed Chaplain for the Town of Canton Volunteer Fire & EMS Department.
Linda Spiers: “I am grateful and honored to accept this new role, and to have the opportunity to give back to the Canton community … in a new way. My role as Department Chaplain is to minister to the needs of volunteer firefighters and EMTs from all religious backgrounds, including those without traditional religious affiliations. Listening with the ear of the heart and loving all for who they are, is the mission.”
“For me, it’s a new ministry of presence: in both the worst and best of times; lending an ear to those who may need to talk, or to others who could benefit from spiritual guidance. I also look forward to building new relationships with Canton’s volunteer firefighters and EMTs. I know the gift these brave women and men are to our community.”
