West Island Community Engagement Organizer

My name is Daria and my relationship with Christian Direction dates back to my first internship in 2007, studying Ville Marie. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to serve in many different roles and was officially hired in 2017 to catalyze the West Island Network.


This role really allows me to live out my heart for Christian unity and community engagement, mobilizing different initiatives here in the West Island, including our annual Prayer Breakfast, The Big Give, working with our CAITeam (Community Action and Impact Team, a group of around 10 people from 8 different churches). I also get to co-facilitate our WI Poverty Reduction and Social Inclusion roundtable with a dynamic group of community organizations. It’s a joy for me to serve the church and community in helping make the West Island an even better place for everyone.
