I am a lay person in the Episcopal Church. My home parish is Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I mentor an Education for Ministry (EfM) group, teach an occasional Forum and serve as lector and Eucharistic minister. I was recently asked to take on some new work in the Diocese of Virginia. I have been trained as a facilitator in a new spiritual discernment process for people who wish to explore a call to lay or ordained ministry.
I am a Benedictine Oblate, a lay person affiliated with a religious community. My monastic home community is the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia, a Roman Catholic community in Bristow, Virginia.
