My name is Mary Anderson and I have been a member of St. Martin-in-the-Fields for over 25 years. I am a lifetime Episcopalian and my husband and I met in the Episcopal church as teenagers. We started attending St. Martin’s when our boys were very young. My husband, Steve, was a member of the vestry and Junior Warden for many years, as well as head of the Holy Mowers and Memorial Garden ministries.
As a retired teacher of over 40 years, I feel like I can bring a stamina and an understanding of the importance of leadership at the church. I can offer my gifts and talents to the church and I will listen to and voice the concerns of the congregation. As a member of Altar Guild, the Flower Guild, Quiet Committee, a former Sunday School teacher, the Convener of Parish Life Commission and a longtime leader of the Hospitality Committee, I understand the heartbeat of our church. Being the secretary of the Vestry for several years I am familiar with the function of the Vestry.
As a longtime member, I continue to have a vested interest in St. Martin-in-the-Fields and look forward to watching our church and church community grow and make the necessary changes to continue to be a place where all people want to worship and create a church family.
