The Reverend Sarah Shirley Rector@stlukespowhatan.org
St. Luke’s has called The Rev. Sarah A. Shirley to be our interim rector. Sarah joined us on August 1 and will be with us for one year, with the option to continue for a longer time if needed. As part of her work here, Sarah will help us in our search for a new rector, but will not be a candidate to be a permanent rector.
The Rev. Sarah A. Shirley is a priest from the Episcopal Diocese of Washington (DC). She knew she was to be a priest from the age of seven, and was more than a bit peeved to learn the church didn’t ordain women. Since she wasn’t then mature enough not to stomp off in a huff, Sarah wandered about in nonprofit administration, political campaign organizing, fund raising, and college teaching before being ordained in the United Methodist Church in 1993. While pastor of Wesley United Methodist Church in North Las Vegas, Nevada, she founded Lighthouse AIDS Ministry, an interfaith effort serving individuals and families affected by HIV and AIDS.
