Laura Masterson
Priest In Charge

Dear Siblings in Christ,

It is my great joy and an honor to join you at St. Mary and St. Martha as Priest in Charge this August. In discerning this call, God’s guidance is being made clear and extraordinary. Since then, I have been praying for you each day. Currently, I was most recently serving at Christ Church Cathedral in Lexington, KY as Associate Rector for Outreach and Welcome.

My husband, Greg and I are natives of New England, but spent many

years in Atlanta before attending seminary at Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, TX. Years ago, we attended St. Mary and St. Martha and found a beautiful community there. We have one son, Zachary, who is 18 years old and is attending Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. We also have one daughter, Lydia, who is 15 years old and is a sophomore in high school.  I was an educator in my former vocation and trained in chaplaincy before attending seminary. My great loves are people, gardening, and belly laughing, preferably around the dinner table. All of these experiences and loves remind me that nothing is wasted in the economy of God.

Together, we will grow further into who we are made to be- a community of faithful followers of Jesus, reflecting the ultimate love- God for us- in our prayers and in our actions. We are called to love and heal, grow and pray. We will, with God help! 

 

In Christ, 
Laura+
