New Rector

from the blog of St. Mary's Rector, The Rev. Allison Burns-LaGreca

IMG_9196.jpgI am a Priest and Spiritual Director in the Episcopal Church, a mom, wife, artist, prayer warrior-survivor who Loves sharing the Gospel of Christ with all I encounter.

My spiritual journey has been filled with a myriad of causeways, sufferings of great pain balanced by the euphoria of grace and mercy of our ever-living God. I have been guided by great teachers, mentors and yes, even a good sage or two. They have blessed me with the armour of wisdom, love, compassion and care. As they have cared for me, I pray too, that I may be a blessing of good grace and healing to all of you.

I have a holistic approach to ministry, and life, which includes the wellness of our whole being, body, mind and spirit; and how our whole self interacts with building and forming relationships and community.

As an empath by nature, I am moved deeply by the people of the world in need of feeling God's care and Love which leads me to embrace action founded and supported in prayer. It is our duty and obligation as Christians in this world to be stewards of Social Justice and Advocacy, to support and care for all of God's creation, and to love one another as God has loved us.

My intention with this blog is to share, teach and pray. The Home page will host current posts. The artwork is spun from those moments of prayer in which I have otherwise had no words, and then there are photos from the Holy Land. The rest will unfold.

May God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace by means of your faith in him, so that your hope will continue to grow by the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Yours in Christ,

Mo. Allison+
