June 22nd, 2022Congratulations Fr Jeff and Terry
On Sunday morning, June 5, (Pentecost Sunday), Father Jeff O’Hare, left, and Terry Langevin were married by the Anglican Bishop of Ontario, the Right Reverend Michael Oulton, in front of Father Jeff’s congregation of Christ Church Belleville.
Fr Jeff, who was formerly with Christ Church, Daylesford, said there were 140 parishioners, members of the wider community, friends, family and the Mayor of Belleville “at this wonderful celebration and historic event”.
“Same sex marriage in the Anglican diocese of Ontario has been approved of since 2019, and this is the first taken by the bishop of one of his own clergy.” Terry’s two sons, Shae and Sammy, and Fr Jeff’s brother, Shane, all played ‘best men’ at the ceremony. Also in attendance was 14-year-old pooch Atticus, who made the move from Daylesford to Canada with Fr Jeff.
“It was a wonderful day,” Fr Jeff said.
