Therese C Y Lee
I am a wife, a mother, and proudly Catholic. I graduated from University of Waterloo with a doctorate in Mathematics. My main research was in the field of Combinatorics & Optimization. I like to describe it to others as the studying of puzzles involving numbers that do not have specific numerical values. I, however, took an extreme early retirement from Mathematics. People always say there is a correlation between Math and Music ability. I certainly love making music. I am a pianist and a soprano. I was the Program Coordinator for a local music marathon for three years. For 13 years, I volunteered with my family at a local retirement home, sharing our joy of music with the residents until the pandemic started last year. As a church musician, I was intrigued by the lyrics of the hymns and was eager to have a deeper understanding of the Liturgy. Three years ago, I completed the Certificate of Pastoral Ministry program at St. Peter’s Seminary, London, Ontario. The program helped me grow in faith and to be more aware of my spirituality. I am currently enrolled in the Spiritual Direction program with the Haden Institute, in the hope that I may be a helpful spiritual companion for others who are on their journey seeking God, and hoping to deepen their relationship with Christ.
