    Paul Peters Derry

    – Artsci’85

    Spring 2022

    After a long and circuitous period of discernment, complicated by COVID-19, Paul Peters Derry MDiv (Vancouver), DMin (Chicago) and STM (Winnipeg), was ordained to the “transitional diaconate” by the Rt Rev Geoffrey Woodcroft of the Diocese of Rupert’s Land on Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021. Ordained to the Ministry of Word, Sacrament, and Pastoral Care within The United Church of Canada (1990), Paul has wandered and wondered his way into the Anglican communion. When he was ordained the first time, he was “transferred and settled” to the Shared Anglican-United Church Ministry of All Saints’ Anglican Church and St Andrew’s United Church, Sept-Iles, Quebec. His involvement with Anglicanism actually goes back to his participation in the life and work of Canterbury House, the Anglican chaplaincy centre on the Queen’s campus, under the direction of the Rev. Sel and Joan Caradus. What a long and winding road it has been! Paul continues his work as clinical service lead - Spiritual Health Services at Winnipeg’s Victoria Hospital and to his commitment as certified supervisor-educator of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) through the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care (CASC).

    – Artsci’88

    Spring 2022

    Happy to announce the publication of my fourth book in October 2021 from Dundurn Press. It builds on my research/writing on coping with modern-day complexity, but this time I take a more personal approach. Hard To Be Human: Overcoming Our 5 Cognitive Design Flaws is my attempt to examine what makes being human so hard some of the time. And along the way, I share some deeply personal anecdotes about my own struggles as they relate to the “5 Big Flaws” of the human brain/mind. I’m still getting mileage from my Queen’s philosophy degree!

    Philip Hamilton, Kent Rogers, and Ralph Yarnell

    – Meds’77, Meds’77 and Meds’77

    Spring 2022

    Three classmates Philip Hamilton (Gatineau) and Kent Rogers (Georgia), and Ralph Yarnell (Vermont) celebrate a combined 129 years of anesthesiology practice, getting together this past summer at the lake. Ralph retired in 2018; Phil now works part-time; and Kent retired in 2021. Ralph and Phil first travelled to New Zealand for training after graduation. Ralph spent years as Director of Obstetric Anesthesiology and Residency Director in Boston and Vermont; Phil worked in the Ottawa area and the UAE in academic and private practice; and Kent was a cardiac anesthesiologist in Toronto and Atlanta. Their wives sustained them in their journeys from Queen’s to the present. Their careers were invigorating and fulfilling, and they remain grateful for the wonderful classmates they met during their medical school years.
