Reverend Victoria Scott – New Priest Announced at Ascension Church

Mary Crawford

The Church of the Ascension has announced that Reverend Victoria Scott is the new priest of the Echo Drive Anglican church. Her appointment as the spiritual head of Ascension took effect in August 2022.

Most recently, Reverend Scott served as Incumbent of St. Luke’s Anglican Church on Somerset Street from 2018-2022. During her time at St. Luke’s, parish presence increased in the neighbourhood. In addition to traditional Anglican worship Sunday morning, St. Luke’s also served as a “Spiritual Hub” for arts, music, and poetry events while under Reverend Scott’s stewardship.

She has been described as a gifted pastor, priest, and teacher. Parishioners advise that Reverend Scott will bring much intelligence, sensitivity, and creativity to the ministry at Ascension.
