The Reverend Heather Blackstone, a minister in the United Church of Christ, will join the staff of St. Edmund’s as full-time Director of Youth Ministries this July, with responsibility for developing all dimensions of our youth programs.
Heather is concluding her ministry as Associate Pastor at Burbank United Methodist Church, and will continue in the Religious and Spiritual Life Office at Occidental College.
Her full bio will soon appear on the Parish Web-Page, though many of you have seen the recent announcement.
Heather is married to Antonio Bartolome, Senior Advisor at the Thornton School of Music at USC. They have one son, Alipio, who will begin attending St. Edmund’s Nursery School in September.
I offer hearty thanks to our Search Committee (Sylvia Smythe; Chair, John Miller, John Quinn, Gale Rolfe, Nathaniel Rolfe and Carolyn Seitz). GFW+
