Vestry members are elected to serve a three year term. They establish the budget and oversee all financial and property concerns as well as providing leadership in the various ministries of the church. Our Vestry members are:
Our Senior Warden is Elizabeth Drembus
The Reverend John Baker has served St. Aidan's as Rector since 1999. John found his calling in seminary when he served a parish that welcomed skeptics and doubters into the congregation--not to change their beliefs, but trusting that in community and through engagement with the liturgy and rich tradition of the Church, people would find their own way with God. John has worked over the years to extend that same welcome to anyone who approaches the church wondering what it might have to offer. He celebrates the stories of those who have entered the Church through that wide door and who have found their lives grounded in the community and in the greater reality many of us call God.
Our Parish Administrator, Eileen Byrne-Myers, has kept the front office at St. Aidan's running smoothly for five years. She manages the office, schedules building use, creates bulletins and newsletters, coordinates many of our volunteers and provides support for seasonal community events like Oktoberfest and the annual tree sale. Eileen can be reached by emailing St. Aidan's or by phone during regular office hours.
In addition to her role on staff, Eileen and her family are members of the parish.
Pat Petteway has been involved in the local music community for many years. She is our organist and she plays piano and sometimes guitar for our morning services. and leads our choir for the morning services. She also organizes a children's choir.
Rebecca Troutman is our Youth Education Coordinator and Pastoral Assistant.
Rebecca joined the staff in January of 2020 to work with the youth of St. Aidan’s and to oversee the formation program with the Godly Play group and the middle school class. Rebecca takes an active role in worship, behind the scenes in planning and up front as a reader, Lay Eucharistic Minister, and preacher. Rebecca has a Masters of Divinity degree and she has experience in children’s ministry, preaching, and outreach in the Episcopal Church. She sensed a call to ministry while in the Navy and is participating in the discernment process with the Diocese of Southern Virginia. She is especially grateful to those who contributed to the growth and development of her own faith as a youth and hopes to encourage that same spirit of service at St. Aidan’s.
