Our Deacon In Charge

Vicar Amelie Wilmer

Greetings Members and Friends of All Souls Episcopal Church,

The Vestry is very pleased and excited to announce that Rev. Deacon Katherine G. Dougherty has accepted our call to become our Deacon in Charge.  Ordained June 10 to the Transitional Deaconate by the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, Rev. Deacon Dougherty will be ordained to the Priesthood in early December.  Katherine will be introduced to All Souls and Messiah on Sunday, July 16 at the 9:30 am Worship service. At 5 pm, we will give her an All Souls Welcome at our “Fun, Fellowship and Food” event at the Atlee House. We hope you will attend both.

Rev. Deacon Dougherty brings with her many talents and skills that will enhance our goals at All Souls.  Her background in both public education as a Learning Specialist and in the corporate world as an Organizational Consultant and Facilitator will be beneficial in guiding the mission of All Souls.  The vestry was impressed not only with her skills and experiences, but with her thoughtful and insightful answers to our many questions. 

While a student at Sewanee, Katherine’s summer internships were served in Virginia.  She was a Chaplain at the University of Virginia Medical Center and interned with Christ Church Episcopal in Glen Allen. She did her field education at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church in Tennessee.  Through these ministries, Katherine developed her skills in preaching and worship, pastoral counseling, leading parish retreats and programming.

Katherine enjoys working collaboratively in creative and loving ways to share God’s love for all in the world.  She feels fortunate to have had wonderful mentors along the way and is looking forward to beginning her ministry at All Souls Episcopal Church. 

Rev. Deacon Dougherty is excited to move to the Mechanicsville area with her rescue dog Sawyer and cat Scampers. She loves being outdoors, kayaking, art, live music, and cherishes time laughing and playing with her family and friends.

The Vestry knows that you will welcome Katherine to All Souls, and that we all will walk with her on our new journey to “Respond to God, Love Each Other, Serve in Faith.”

Sincerely,

Lee Hanchey, Sr. Warden
