Learn about her in her own words:

My name is Silke Fahl and I will be starting my overseas vicariate at MLC on June 1. I’m a so-called “waschechtes Nordlicht” (a dyed-in-the-wool North-German). I was born in Hamburg and grew up in Hanover; with holidays and many weekends spent by the sea. Hence, it was clear to me that after studying in Göttingen I should head further north again. So I did my vicariate in two villages in Ostfriesland (East Frisia).

I’m a very quiet person, but adventurous. I love reading, music, horseback riding and writing. As long as I can remember, I liked to explore new places and have always been a globetrotter. Through a student exchange in 2004, I had the chance to travel to Canada for the first time. A year later I was able to go to Ste-Marie de Beauce (Quebec) with two other students again for 3 months and attended the Polyvalent Benoît-Vachon school there. With every visit to Canada, I fell more in love with this country and its people. Accordingly, I am very excited to be able to work in your congregation for the next 12 months and to get to know you and Toronto.
Your vicar (to be), Silke Fahl
