The Rev. Elizabeth Wade

Interim Priest

It is with great pleasure that the Wardens and Vestry of St. Paul’s announce the appointment of our Interim Priest, the Reverend Elizabeth (Libby) Wade, beginning on July 1, 2022.

St. Paul’s is very lucky to engage with Libby as we go through the transition of finding a new rector for St. Paul’s. She has extensive experience in Interim/Transitional Ministry. Shortly after moving from Kentucky, where she had served as priest in several congregations, Libby served as St. Paul’s Priest-in-Charge from January to July 2015. Since 2015, she has served as Interim in several other congregations of this diocese: St. John’s in Williamstown, Southwick Community Episcopal Church, and Grace Church in Great Barrington. She also brings a wealth of knowledge and experience gained prior to ordination as a college instructor, social work case manager, mental health crisis line coordinator, preschool director, children’s minister, and church musician.

As we go through this period of transition, we welcome Libby to walk this journey with us as we prepare for the next stage of our life together as St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

Truly we are blessed,

The Wardens and Vestry of St. Paul’s
