Lizzi Lizzi (second from left) celebrated her last day of student placement at St. John’s with St. Macrina Counselling Services. As a student from Tyndale, Lizzi worked within the community from January until August, to offer therapy and counselling services under supervision. Lizzi was referred to us by St Barth’s Anglican Church, and is originally from Russia. She worked hard to offer support to many people in need of counselling, and learned a lot from people in the community during her time with us. We were fortunate to experience Lizzi’s presence and kindness these past months, and we wish her the best in her future endeavors.
