Saint Mary’s Whitechapel and Trinity Episcopal churches welcome their new rector, the Reverend Doctor Megan Limburg.
She is currently serving as associate rector of Grace Episcopal Church in Kilmarnock. Rev. Limburg will begin her duties with the two yoked churches at their Ash Wednesday services, March 1. The Rite II Holy Eucharist service will begin at noon at St Mary’s and 5:30 p.m. at Trinity.
Rev. Limburg brings with her a wealth of expertise, reported Ed Ramsey. She was chaplain and counselor with Saint Christopher’s School in Richmond for 21 years and has been with Grace Episcopal for the past three years.
Rev. Limburg is a graduate of the University of Virginia and received her masters in Christian education from Union Theological Seminary in Richmond. She then received her doctorate of ministry from Baptist Theological Seminary of Richmond.
She serves on the board of trustees, Church Schools of the Diocese of Virginia; the foundation board of Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury; as Fresh Start facilitator for the Diocese of Virginia and is a member of the Lancaster Ministerial Association.
She and her husband, the Rev. Tim Limburg, live in Kilmarnock. He is a retired Presbyterian minister.
Currently serving the two yoked churches is the Rev. Dr. Ron Okrasinski who has been interim rector for the past 14 months. Dr. Okrasinski served St Mary’s in Colonial Beach for 33 years, and agreed to serve as interim until a full-time rector was called to the two churches.
