Meet Our Pastors and Staff
Rev. Trish Schmermund
Holy Spirit welcomed Pastor Trish and her husband Ken in August 2012. Ken and Trish live in Edmonton and have two adult children. She attended the University of Alberta (BSc in Agriculture) and completed theological studies at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon (MDiv.) Trish has also served parishes in Edson and Leduc.
"God is about love. Always love. It sounds so simple and yet, if you are at all awake in this world, you will know that we obviously have a lot to learn! Keep learning, exploring, discovering all that life has to offer, because all of life is a gift from God. Take a chance and look for where God is already at work in the world."
If she's not at church you might find her in the backyard garden, on the golf course or possibly scooting around town on her motorcycle!
Rev. Lindsey Jorgensen-Skakum
Currently on Parental Leave
Pastor Lindsey was born and raised in Lethbridge, Alberta. Lindsey began the journey towards ordained ministry in 2007 when they felt God’s call to use their gifts in a new way. After completing a B.A. in Religious Studies, Lindsey enrolled at the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon in 2012 to prepare for ministry within the ELCIC. In 2016 Holy Spirit called Pastor Lindsey to begin their first call with and among the congregation following their time of internship. When Pastor Lindsey isn’t at the church they can be found exploring the city with their wife Danika, or strapping on a pair of roller skates to play roller derby as “Dreamwhip” with the St. Albert Heavenly Rollers.
