Celebrating over 70 years as a nurturing spiritual community in Christ Jesus, from which we go forth and serve God by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We Welcome Our New Rector, Rev. Beth Magill
God has answered our prayers! The Vestry and Search Committee are overjoyed to announce that the Rev. Beth Magill has accepted a call to serve as 7th Rector of St. Michael's. She began conducting services on Sunday, December 10.
A native of Alexandria, Beth grew up as a member of Christ Church in Old Town. Beth attended William & Mary as an undergrad, receiving a BA in Sociology. Soon after, she attended Yale University for her Masters of Divinity and Diploma of Anglican Studies. Ordained in 2009, Beth's first call took her to the Diocese of Texas where she first served as an Associate at St. David's in Austin, then as Missioner to the University of Texas, and then as Missioner for Congregational Initiatives.
