Christine (Tina) Hanlon
Church of the Ascension Parish, Parksville/Qualicum
Christine moved to Vancouver Island in 2004 and joined the Church of Ascension, where with husband, Michael, they served the Catholic Women's League (CWL) and Knights of Columbus; volunteering for each other's organization like a team.
Through the CWL, Tina served as Christian Family Life Chair, Co-President of the CWL, was Past President of the Ascension CWL Council, and is currently Community Life Chair for the Victoria Diocesan Council. She is known as one of the 'Kitchen Ladies', and has provided dinners for the Youth Group, Parish Receptions, for visiting priests, and Diocesan functions.
Along with five others, several years ago, Tina started a Bible Study Class, starting with Jeff Cavin’s Great Adventure: A Journey Through The Bible, expanding it over the years. Tina also started a Prayer Line for the needs of CWL members, eventually becoming a prayer support line for all parishioners, with many prayers answered through the intercession of Our Lady of Good Counsel, and the Holy Spirit, lifting many hearts in need.
