Our Clergy and Staff

(The Rev.) Susan S. MacDonald, rector 

Someone has remarked that as followers of Jesus, our journey forms and binds us together; just as their journey from Galilee to Jerusalem and beyond did for the original disciples.

Before I was ordained deacon and then priest by the Rt. Rev. Michie Klusmeyer in 2007, my ministry took place in the non-profit and legal sectors as an executive director and lawyer. I received my M.Div. from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg (Anglican courses at VTS); Master’s in Counseling from the George Washington University;  Juris Doctor from the Dickinson School of Law/Penn State; & B.Mus. from Virginia Commonwealth University.  In God’s wisdom and grace, these experiences converged in January, 2014, when I was called to serve this loving congregation.

This is a special time in the life of the Episcopal Church, rich with opportunities to celebrate and live out the diversity with which God has gifted each one of us.  I invite you to come walk the way of love with us!  Our journey together with Jesus Christ continues!

(The Rev.) Ann H. Truitt, priest associate

Since her ordination as a priest in 2013 Ann has served as a non-stipendiary Priest Associate at three Diocese of Virginia Churches: Episcopal Church of the Resurrection in Alexandria, St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Arlington, and Calvary Episcopal Church in Front Royal. Ann has been a volunteer chaplain at Virginia Hospital Center. She does supply ministry when needed in the Diocese. Prior to answering her call to ordained ministry, Ann served 32 years as a civilian employee of the federal government, many of which as a supervisory contracting officer responsible for the acquisition and management of contracts at the Naval Sea Systems Command, and then the U.S. Department of State.

Ann has a B.S. degree in Business Administration from University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a M.S. from The American University in Procurement, Grants, and Acquisition Management. Her Master of Theological Studies is from Wesley Theological Seminary, and her Anglican and Episcopal courses were taken at Virginia Theological Seminary.
