Church of the Ascension is pleased and excited to announce that Rev’d Victoria Scott is the incumbent priest for our parish.
Victoria holds a Bachelor of Music from Queen’s University, a Master of Music from the University of Western Ontario, and a Master of Divinity from St. Paul University, Ottawa. Prior to her ordination in 2016, Victoria worked as a Policy Analyst with the federal government. Since ordination, she served for two years as the Assistant Curate at St. Thomas the Apostle, Ottawa, and, since 2018, as the Incumbent of St. Luke’s, Ottawa; and has served our diocese in many ways, notably as the Chair of our Education Committee.
Victoria is a gifted pastor, priest, and teacher, who will add much intelligence, sensitivity, and creativity to our ministry at Ascension.
