Meet the Vestry!
Meet the members of the St. Mary's Vestry, our church's governing board.
Arianne Morrison, Early Childhood Ministries
in her second term, 2021-2023
This area of ministry focuses on teaching and sharing the love of God in Christ to, with, and for preschool-aged children. It has as its foundational mission statement the Children’s Charter for the Church. We work to include preschool-aged children in all aspects of parish life, worship, and ministry.
Tell us about yourself:
If my family isn’t at church on Sunday, we are worshiping in the outdoors…mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, canoe packing or backcountry skiing. My wonderful husband and I have fallen in love with St. Mary’s as a place where we are able to ask faith questions and where someday our children will be able to do the same.
What do you love about St Mary’s?
The view of the mountains from the sanctuary! I love, love, love that the parishioners of St. Mary’s hear the teachings of Jesus while looking out at God’s creation. I think that is a small part of why St. Mary’s is so good at getting out to serve in the community.
Where do you believe God is calling us as a community of faith in the years ahead?
I think one thing we should continue to do always is the “little things”. It is easy to feel overwhelmed at times when considering news headlines and world events. But the “little things” are really the most important, saying a prayer or helping a child pick up a piece of trash on the trail. Love your neighbor, live in awe…that’s my religion!
