2017 Nominations

The Following People were elected to the vestry by the Annual Meeting of the parish on January 29, 2017

Brian Barnhart


Brian grew up in an Episcopal Church in London Ohio. He joined the Holy Communion family when he moved to University City in 2012.  He has been serving as interim Treasurer for the Parish since the summer of 2016 and has enjoyed getting more involved with the congregation in that role. In the coming year, Brian is most excited about helping grow the income of the church and continue to improve its sustainability for years to come.  He is also eager to see the church increase its involvement in the community in creative and impactful ways.
Brian can typically be seen at the 8 am service, following his daughters, Daphne (age 4) and Clara (age 2). These ladies, and his wife Cynthia, keep him busy and happy. Professionally, Brian has worked as a Materials Engineer for manufacturing companies and as a Management Consultant, specializing in Mergers and Acquisitions, for Deloitte Consulting.  He now helps Deloitte with their Financial Planning & Analysis. 

Patricia Redington

If elected, this will be my third time on the Vestry since joining Holy Communion back in 1983. My husband Randy Mariani and I joined the church not long after first attending a service here, being drawn in by the very welcoming community and the diversity of people and ideas. Over the years I’ve served as an usher and with several of the food ministries (Sunday breakfast, emergency meals, social events), as I enjoy baking and cooking. I’m looking forward to continuing the new growth we’ve been enjoying and seeing what new activities and ministries will come from that.
I’ve just started my third year of retirement after thirty years as an attorney with the County Counselor’s Office, and am enjoying the chance for a little extra physical fitness time, volunteer legal work, and more time with my family.

Alisa Williams

I’ve been a member at Holy Communion for 11 years.  My first volunteer duty was being an usher.  I’m also a member of the flower committee, I volunteer for the juvenile detention birthday parties, and have been reading Scripture as well as being an intercessor.  My church life has been so fulfilling and rich, and I am beyond grateful to the Holy Communion family for welcoming me into the fold.

In my other life, I work for United Healthcare in the small business sales and marketing for 7 years.  I enjoy traveling, shopping for bargains, and reading.  It would be my honor to serve as a member of the Vestry of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion.
