Our Vicar, The Rev. Dr. Judith Jones

Our Joint Ministry of St. Luke & St. Stephen is happy to announce that our search for the perfect vicar for us has been successful. The Rev. Dr. Judith Jones has joined the Joint Ministry of St. Luke & St. Stephen. She came to us from Iowa where she was the professor of the New Testament at Wartburg College in Waverly AND a half-time Vicar of an Episcopal Church. She is now the Vicar of our two communities.

She's agreed for us to share her resume.

Her husband, Brian, has joined her since he finished his duties in Old Testament at Wartburg.

Rev. Susan Church, Retired
The Reverend Susan Church served our communities since 1989 as the Vicar of both St. Luke's-by the Sea, Waldport, and St. Stephen's, Newport. She retired in August 2015. This is the blessing that Susan† used in her last few Sundays.

Life is short and we do not have too much time to gladden the hearts of those who travel the way with us: So be swift to love, and make haste to be kind, and may God the Divine Mystery who is beyond our ability to fully know but who made us, and who loves us, and who travels with us, bless us and keep us in peace. ~ Susan†
