Ministry Leadership

Julie Worrall, Parish Priest

Rev'd Julie Worrall joined our community on 28 February 2020.

The Rev Julie Worrall comes to the Parish of St Chad's from Queensland where she was until most recently the Rector of the Anglican Parish of Caloundra with Glasshouse Country and Archdeacon of the Sunshine Coast.

Ordained on the 17th December 2005 in St John's Cathedral Brisbane Julie has had wide vocational experience having been Priest in a number of Parishes in Queensland together with appointments to Church Boards and Committees.

Julie has continued to study following her Ordination. She has qualifications in number of disciplines relating to "The Church". Julie obtained her Master of Ministry on the topic " Focus on Church Leadership and the Mission of the Church". Her thesis, a work in progress, for her Doctorate of Ministry is on the topic " Exploring Clergy wellbeing and the structures ordained women utilise to maintain and promote emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing when ministering in Parishes". Julie believes in the importance of using art and music in supervision and pastoral care. Our new Priest has a special interest in youth ministry.

Most recently Julie has taken on a part time position as the Director of Ministry Formation and Discernment at St Barnabas College for the Anglican Church. In her role at the College, Julie meets with people exploring ordained ministry, journeying with them through the stages of Inquiry, Discernment and Formation and coordinating their training programmes as they prepare for Ordained and Lay roles within the Church. 

Rev'd Julie is currently on long term sick leave. Please contact Rev'd Jo Armour.

Rev'd Josephine Armour

After a long career in teaching, Jo has in recent years retired from  a fulltime position as Deputy Principal at St Dominic’s Priory College, an R-12 Catholic school for girls  located in North Adelaide. She taught Year 12 Religion Studies for many years and since that time has been lecturing at St Barnabas College in Ecclesiology and Introduction to Christian Theology. Jo spent 25 years as a Dominican Sister in the Holy Cross Congregation (Cabra Dominicans)  in Adelaide before returning to the Anglican church where she was originally baptised and confirmed. 

In 2019, she was ordained as a deacon and in November 2020 as a priest. Her theological interests cover ecclesiology, ministry, feminist theology, trinitarian theology, spirituality and inclusivity. In 2019, she published Call No-One on Earth Your Father: Revisioning the Ordained Ministry in the Contemporary Catholic Church, a book which presents the relational nature of the Trinity as an image for the ministry of the church. She believes that ministry must sit in its rightful context of a Christian community where all of the gifts of the baptised are valued and where ministry is collaborative, non-hierarchical and mutually enriching for the people of God.  

Her other interests include fitness, trekking, swimming, reading and gardening
