Maria Togade-Paredes

Children's Ministry Administrative Assistant

Married to Dante, Maria is the proud mother of 3 wonderful sons. Born in the Philippines, she migrated to Canada with her family in 1994, and has made Edmonton her home ever since. She loves Ellerslie because of its “fantastic” children’s ministry, a place where her special needs child feels welcomed, supported, loved and included. When not at the church she is an active mom and wife (“I absolutely love doing life with my family!”). If she has any spare time she enjoys just hanging out with friends, and her extended family. The nugget from God’s word that has carried her through various seasons of life is Lamentations 3:22,23

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness!”

— Lamentations 3:22,23 (ESV)
