The Vestry of Trinity Episcopal Church (St. Louis/Diocese of Missouri) is very happy to announce that The Rev. Jon Stratton has accepted the call to be the next Rector at Trinity. The Rev. Stratton will be starting at Trinity in January 2015. He is currently the Executive Director of The Episcopal Service Corps STL (The Deaconess Anne House) and a priest associate at Christ Church Cathedral.
Jon is a native of south eastern Illinois, and has lived in St. Louis for six years. He and his wife Susie love the city and are proud parents of a four month old daughter (Alice). Before serving as Executive Director at The Deaconess Anne House and priest associate at Christ Church Cathedral, Jon served as youth minister for The Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion and Diocesan Youth Missioner for The Diocese of Missouri. Besides his ecclesial duties, Jon co-chairs the Faith and Labor Alliance for Missouri Jobs with Justice and enjoys pedaling around the city on his bicycle.
We give thanks to the Search Committee for their demanding and prayerful ministry, to the Vestry for its leadership and affirmation, and to the entire parish during this fruitful and productive interim time. May God bless all that is, and all that is still to be.
