Our Rector, Reverend Michael Clarke is a former Peel Regional Police officer. As such he is aware of the emotional and physical toll that First Responder’s service work can take on an individual working in this field.
Together with former Peel Police officer Gary Rubie the two men are starting a support group for First Responders at St Stephens on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00pm in the parish hall. Suicide Prevention And Resiliency Training Anonymous (SPARTA) is a proven program that Gary Rubie has run at St Stephens in the past. The program is open to all First Responders working in fields of policing, corrections, EMS, etc.
