The Rev. Canon Joan Anthony, Interim
Canon Joan began her ministry here at St. Augustine’s on August 1, 2019, and has served extensively with the Diocese of Olympia. She was Canon to the Ordinary for Bishop Rickel, Canon for Congregational Development beforehand, and also an instructor at the Diocesan School for Ministry. In the ’90s, Joan was an assistant rector at St. John’s in Olympia and at St. Francis in-the-Valley in Green Valley, AZ. She was Vicar at St. Benedict’s in Lacey from ’97-‘2003, and has served as Priest-in-charge at four additional parishes. In a letter introducing herself to the Vestry, Joan expressed that she believes her strengths lie particularly in pastoral ministry. She is able to agree to disagree and values the right of individuals to hold a variety of viewpoints. She seeks to “encourage an environment where all who wish to offer their gifts and talents find a place to do so.” You can reach Canon Joan at 360-280-9836 or interim@whidbey.com
