THE REV. DR. ANGELA F. SHEPHERD is Rector of St. Bartholomew’s. She has served the Diocese of Maryland as canon for mission for over seven years, a position that has included working with others in areas of dismantling racism, environmental initiatives, public policy, and a high school summer enrichment program. In addition, itinerate preaching, leading workshops, retreats, making presentations, and other duties as assigned have filled her portfolio. Prior to that, fourteen years of leading congregations complete her journey to this point. She now looks forward to reengaging what is tenderly known as “cradle to grave” ministry. She joined the staff on March 1, 2018.
THE REV. BEVERLEY ELLIOTT is Senior Associate for Pastoral Care and Adult Formation/Learning. For Beverley, the most life-giving act as a priest in St. Bartholomew’s community, is sitting with another and listening to their story and longings – their longings to know and be known by God and other human beings.
Beverley, a cradle Anglican/Episcopalian is an Australian-American and has been on staff since 2001, the year of her ordination. Her first vocation was as a public health nurse, often working in the outback of Australia. Beverley is married to recently retired Episcopal priest, Paul Elliott and lives with him and Pendo their dog, in a wonderful old home situated outside the west gates of Stone Mountain Park. Beverley holds a deep interest in cultural diversity in community, the ending of racism and the use of expansive language to name the mystery that is God. All flow out of her understanding of what Jesus the Christ is leading us into in the 21st Century.
THE REV. DR. CORINNE CRAMMER received her undergraduate degree and an MBA from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.
