Dear Members and Friends of St. Andrew’s Cathedral,
The theme throughout our profile was, “May the One We Long for Long for Us.” It is with great joy that we announce that the Vestry has called, as the thirty-sixth Rector, and Bishop Seage has appointed, as the ninth Dean, the Reverend Anne M. Maxwell.
The Reverend Anne Maxwell, now Associate Rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Covington, Louisiana, has accepted our call. Anne will begin her ministry at St. Andrew’s on July 15. She will celebrate her first Eucharist with us on Sunday, July 21.
Anne is a graduate of Boston College with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology, Georgia State University with a Masters in Community Counseling, and The University of the South School of Theology with a Masters of Divinity, where she received the preaching award her senior year. She was ordained in 2004. Prior to coming to Christ Episcopal Church in 2009, she served as Associate Rector at Holy Trinity Parish, Decatur, Georgia (4 years), and St. Dunstan’s Church, Atlanta, Georgia (2 years). Prior to attending seminary, Anne worked as the youth director at All Saints’ Church, Atlanta, Georgia, and in the counseling/psychology field as a program director, therapist, and adolescent program coordinator.
Anne is a cradle Episcopalian and the daughter and sister of Episcopal priests. She and her husband Bill have been married for 19 years and they have one son Sam (12) and a sweet lab-child named Maggie. Anne prefers to be called by her given name, though you may certainly use Dean if you are more comfortable doing so.
