Sabbatical Supply Priest

The Rev. Lesley McCloghrie

Remembering how much I enjoyed being with you all in the summer of 2014, I am delighted to, once again, serve as your Sabbatical Priest. Many of you will remember me from that time, from various deanery events, or you may recognize me because, in recent months, I have been worshipping with you at St. Alban’s. For those who do not know me, your Sabbatical Team has asked me to share a little about myself.

Ordained in the Diocese of California, I spent most of my full time ministry in the Diocese of New York. When my husband, Keith, and I retired, we moved to Humboldt County to be closer to our daughter and her family. Since then, I have served as the Resident Associate Priest at Christ Church, Eureka and became Interim Rector in 2015. Since 2017, I have served as the regular supply priest at Martha and Mary Mission in Trinidad and St. Paul’s in Crescent City.


Keith and I have 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren. Keith is a keen and regular

hiker with the Fortuna Senior Hiking Group, and volunteers each week as a Humboldt Trail Steward. I love to sing, play the piano, sew and read (especially mystery novels and, if they involve the Church, so much the better). In my earlier life in England, I was a Home Economics teacher.


I look forward to being with you during this time of sabbatical and hope we will all

make the most of this opportunity for renewal and refreshment. During the summer

months, I will offer a Forum series on Anglican Theology. Together we will explore

questions such as: How has church history shaped our beliefs and understandings about God? And How have many well-known poets reflected our theology in their work?


During Mtr. Sara’s sabbatical I will lead Sunday worship, hold office hours on

Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings (as well as other times by appointment),

and be available for pastoral needs and emergencies in conjunction with Emily.
