Anne’s LCPC bio on website
I have been a member of Ladue Chapel since 1975, when my family moved here from York, PA. As a student, I was very active in youth fellowship, taught Sunday School, attended mission trips, and enjoyed singing in choir and ringing handbells. After receiving a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from The College of Wooster in Ohio, I volunteered with youth ministry, and have been on staff at Ladue Chapel since 1994. I am an ordained elder, trained as a Stephen Ministry leader, and a graduate of Shalem Institute’s Spiritual Direction program. A Benedictine Oblate since November 11, 2017, I strive to live a balanced life of prayer, work, study and leisure.
In my role as Director of Spiritual Life, I am involved in the areas of faith formation, spiritual companionship, music and fellowship. I lead contemplative prayer and communion bread baking groups, prayer retreats, and provide opportunities to learn about spiritual practices and to share our faith stories. I sing with the Chancel Choir, help with our children’s choirs, and occasionally play the piano and organ in worship. I assist the Fellowship Committee in developing and maintaining adult fellowship groups and in welcoming and engaging new members into the life of the congregation.
My husband Steve and I met at Wooster, and we were married at Ladue Chapel in 1988. Steve is very active at church, and we have two children, Victoria and Andrew, who call Ladue Chapel their home. Victoria, also a graduate of Wooster, received her Master’s in Choral Conducting from Boston Conservatory. She now works for Cleveland Orchestra Choruses, sings in various ensembles, and directs a treble choir at Wooster. Andrew also graduated from the College of Wooster and received a Master’s in Communications, Culture, and Technology, at Georgetown University. At home I can usually be found
in the kitchen where I love to bake for family and friends. I enjoy tea, dark chocolate, hiking, contemplative strolls, and spending time with my family.
