Priest-In-Charge: Rev. Rebecca Harris
I am not a cradle Anglican but have been completely immersed in my church for the last forty years. My family did not attend church, but the Anglican Church, with its liturgy and service, won my heart over. Throughout the years, I have been a member of the altar guild, a Sunday school teacher, member of Vestry, Rector’s Warden, People’s Warden, and Lay Reader.
On Holy Cross Day 2017, I was ordained Deacon and my world expanded beyond my imagination. In addition to actively serving my home parish, I was also honored to serve at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Yuma, Arizona where we spent our winters. While there, I was also invited to guest preach in two churches in California which was very rewarding, both personally and professionally.
On the Annunciation of the Lord to the Blessed Virgin Mary, I was ordained Priest in 2020 by now retired Bishop Jane Alexander. I continue to serve Holy Trinity Riverbend where I do my best to offer a meaningful service and prayerful atmosphere for our parishioners so they can come to know God and grow with God. I also lead a monthly church service for those living in seniors’ homes who have no access to church.
I am married to my husband Ian and we have two grown daughters, an 8-year-old granddaughter, and a seven-year-old grandson. I love animals and dream of having the ability to rescue them all. I’m also an avid reader, cross stitcher, and crocheter.
