In early February of 2019 The Rev. Laurie Anzilotti came to Holy Communion as Seminarian. At the same time she also accepted the rector and vestry’s invitation to become our next Assistant Rector, full time, effective July 1 of 2019.
In her work with us, Laurie has special charge for pastoral support for youth, children, and family ministries, collaborating with our Children’s Formation Coordinator Heidi Olliff. Laurie also works with the rector and the vestry to discern how we might be called to expand our worship offerings to better welcome those who are not currently well served by a church.
Laurie earned her Masters of Divinity from Eden Theological Seminary in Webster Groves and was ordained to the Episcopal priesthood in 2019. Prior to ordination, Laurie served as Director of Faith & For the Sake of All, a non-profit that deepens understanding of and response to disparities in health between African American and white St. Louisans, and as Children’s Liturgist at the Church of St. Michael and St. George, Director of Programming at Camp Thunderbird, and as a high school theology teacher.
