Welcome, Maria!

Welcome, Maria!

Our new Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry begins this week.  Please join us in welcoming Maria to St. Peter’s and St. Louis!

Maria will begin her ministry at St. Peter’s on August 21st.  Maria will oversee ministry with 6th-12th grade youth and our young adults.

Maria is coming to St. Louis from Richmond, VA where she recently completed an internship through the Diocese of Virginia with Church of the Holy Comforter.  She is no stranger to St. Louis, having spent a year at the Deaconess Anne House interning at Earth Dance Farms and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Ferguson from 2015-16.  Maria is a graduate of the University of Virginia, with a major in Studio Art.

The search committee was unanimous in its support of calling Maria! I am thankful to the following people who were able to spend time with Maria in this search process:  Billy, Kathy, and Billy Bitting, Morgan & Campbell Schafer, Michael & Cady Lauer, Hopie & Nell Melton.  I am especially grateful to Ginger Dutton who lead this search.  We all look forward to introducing Maria to St. Peter’s and to working with her in the years to come!
