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. Together with my family, I have also been volunteering at a local retirement home, entertaining the residents for the last 13 years. I am a church musician and love bringing in appropriate music from the classical repertoire to liturgies and other church events. Perhaps, I was intrigued by the hymns and the rich meaning of those words. I was just drawn to learn more about my faith and the church. Two years ago, I completed the Certificate of Pastoral Ministry program at St. Peter’s Seminary, London, Ontario. I now have a better awareness of God’s moments in my life. I am very eager to learn more to help myself and others in getting to know Christ and in deepening our relationship with Him. 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.
