My name is Leslie
R. Chin. I am a singer, guitarist, songwriter and liturgical musician
born in 1937 in Jamaica, West Indies and now residing in Scarborough,
Ontario Canada. I've been married to Carmen Chin since 1959 with
three sons, two daughters, four grandsons and five granddaughters.
A retired banker having worked at major banks in Jamaica for
22 years and Toronto for 18 years, I am actively involved in volunteer work
with Friends of
the Poor (Canada) Inc., a registered charity that
supports missions for the poor in Jamaica, Haiti, India, Kenya, Philippines
and Uganda. I am also involved with the North York
(Toronto) Y’s Men’s Club, the service club of the North York YMCA.
I serve as lector and liturgical musician at my church, St. Bartholomew
Catholic Church where my wife also serves as Eucharistic minister. Before
coming to Toronto in 1976, I served as liturgical musician, lector and
prayer cell coordinator at Sts. Peter & Paul Church in Kingston,
My hobbies and interests are music (singing, guitar playing
and songwriting) and golf. I have been a liturgical musician for over
35 years and I obtained my golf teaching certificate in 1995.
I am presently involved in ministering to the bereaved through
my music and by offering support by helping with the planning of funeral
arrangements including mass, visitation service and burial. This
ministry has led me to a keen interest in songwriting, resulting in the
production of my new CD in 2007, "Faith, Hope and Love",
a collection of songs of worship and meditation.
So welcome to my website,
where you will find information about me, my music, my ministry and more. I
wish you all peace, love and happiness in your daily lives and hope you
come back and visit often.
"May you be blessed with the presence of
the Holy Spirit to guide and inspire you as faithful followers of our Lord,
