The new executive assistant to Diocese of Edmonton Bishop Stephen London (as of January 9, 2023) brings a wealth of experience to her role, having previously served the Edmonton diocese as an administrative assistant at All Saints’ Cathedral and then as assistant to Bishop Jane Alexander. 

“I thrive on being a problem solver,” says Sarah Kemp, who has a BA Degree in Psychology, minoring in Christian Theology. “I enjoy managing tasks that will allow Bishop Stephen London and the rest of the team to focus on the larger picture.”

In 2013, Sarah and her husband Grant, along with their then-infant daughter Hazel, relocated to Sweden for Grant’s work as a researcher at the University of Stockholm. The young family, which has grown to include Peter and Rowan, is eager to be nearer to their extended family. Sarah’s parents Bill and Sharon reside in Fort Saskatchewan where Sharon is an active member of St. George’s. 

The Kemps will divide their home base for the short term, while Sarah resettles in Edmonton and the children and Grant finish the school year in Stockholm. 

Bishop Stephen is “really excited” about Sarah’s help and says, “this is such an important position in the life of our diocese, and Sarah will do an amazing job.”

Please join the Synod Office in welcoming Sarah and, eventually, her family back to the Edmonton diocese.
