The Edmonton Society for Christian Education is excited to announce a new member of our team. Celiane Vieira has joined ECNS as the interim Pastoral Care Leader while Hilary is on maternity leave.

Celiane, who also goes by Cely (Sally), is originally from Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, but also lived in St. Louis, Missouri, for seven years. She has completed her Master’s degree in Historical Theology and is currently working on her Ph.D. in Historical Theology/Modern World at Concordia. She has taught Bible/Religious Studies and Ethics and served as a Pastoral Care Leader at a Lutheran school.

Cely’s husband teaches the Old and New Testament at Concordia Lutheran Seminary, which is what originally brought them to Edmonton in 2021, and their daughter attends Edmonton Christian West School. Between spending time with family, going to church, studying, writing books, and travelling, she enjoys a good chimarrão (a Southern Brazilian tea with Yerba mate)!

Cely is excited about this new adventure at Edmonton Christian Northeast School, and we are blessed to have her. Please join us in welcoming her to our wonderful community!
