Peggy Day: I moved from being a deacon at St. Dunstan’s in Ellsworth to being deacon at St. Patrick’s in Brewer, the first of the year.  My first Sunday at St. Pat’s was February 5th.  The focus of my ministry has always been around mental health and family violence issues. I have served as a deacon since October 25, 1990.  During the week, I serve as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Bangor.  I serve on a board of a local domestic violence project and also assist them with fund raising events.  I co-chair the major Gala Event that is held on March 31rst every year.  I am also trained in spiritual direction and offer individual spiritual direction, as well as groups, such as retreats, quiet days, and women’s spirituality groups.  I am currently co-facilitating a women’s spirituality group that is being held at St. Pat’s and has women from a variety of backgrounds, as members.  I do all the diaconal liturgical duties during the Sunday services and I visit parishioners and bring communion to them.  I also visit patients at EMMC when asked to do so by clergy from around the diocese who are not able to get in to see them.  I used to work at EMMC, as a nurse and as a chaplain and so am very familiar with the hospital and comfortable with that role.  Lately I have added my cat to my list of tools, as he goes with me to visit Tom and Teile and others in the Boyd Place Complex.  He is loved by all!
