For many years, Catharine Tut­ton (Cathy) has had an inter­est in devel­op­ing art and recre­ation­al pro­grams that con­tribute to the well-being of chil­dren and com­mu­ni­ties. Chris­t­ian spir­i­tu­al devel­op­ment has been a core part of many of these pro­grams.
Pri­or to com­ing to St. Paul’s, Cathy Tut­ton was employed part-time as the Chris­t­ian edu­ca­tion co-ordi­na­tor at Christ Church in Dart­mouth. From the fall of 2010 until the sum­mer 2015, she was respon­si­ble for the reg­u­lar Sun­day school and youth pro­gram at Christ Church. In the sum­mer she and her hus­band Michael ran a series of ecu­meni­cal Chris­t­ian sum­mer camps that drew wide par­tic­i­pa­tion from the com­mu­ni­ty.  From Jan­u­ary to Decem­ber 2010 Cathy direct­ed children’s pup­pet work­shops and pro­duc­tions for sev­er­al Angli­can church­es in HRM. For sev­er­al years she has also taught children’s sum­mer art camp pro­grams at Alder­ney Land­ing.
Cathy has a back­ground in design and cur­rent­ly pro­vides web­site and relat­ed media design ser­vices and train­ing to small busi­ness own­ers and social enter­pris­es. She also enjoys out­door exer­cise and engages in com­mu­ni­ty projects such as com­mu­ni­ty gar­dens, Noc­turne, Tulip Fest and the Switch Street Fes­ti­val.
