New Westminster chaplain to start Monday

September 19th, 2011 in News

As the campus community continues to mourn the death of one of its students, Westminster College's new chaplain is preparing to start her new position - which will include counseling staff and students affected by the tragedy.

Rev. Jamie Haskins, the school's new director of spiritual life/chaplain and instructor in religious studies said she has been moved by the college's response in the wake of the bicycle accident that eventually resulted in the death of 22-year-old Ruslans Petrovskis, adding that she is ready to help her new community deal with its loss.

"I am looking forward to helping in honoring the life of a student," Haskins said. "I'm sure I'll be working with staff and students, and will be answering those questions that naturally come up at that age."
