Reverend Katherine H. Brinson
I was raised in Waynesboro, Georgia, a small town near Augusta. My family joined the Episcopal Church when I was twelve years old. My parents were drawn to the openness and inclusivity of the church. I learned to love the liturgy and find comfort in it. Each year we celebrate God’s presence with us and the fulfillment of God’s promises in the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.
I worked thirty years in education as a Special Education teacher and School Psychologist. I loved putting the pieces together to determine how students learned and how we could best help them achieve their potential.
I studied at The University of the South School of Theology and was ordained a priest in September of 2007. I came to Grace after serving at St. Michael’s in Waynesboro as their interim priest and at St. Mary Magdalene in Louisville.
After our search at Grace, it became clear to me that this is where God wants me and each year that is more deeply ingrained in me.
My emphasis in parish ministry is on love – the love we receive from God and the love we are called on to share with others. I often say that we are the hands, hearts and feet of Christ, so we are to minister to others in need. We are the family of God! I am delighted to be serving here at Grace and welcome all who are looking for a church home.

The vestry is the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property. Vestry members are elected at the annual parish meeting. The presiding officer of the vestry is the rector. The senior warden leads the parish between rectors and is a support person for the rector. The junior warden has responsibility for church property and buildings. The basic responsibilities of the vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation; to support the church's mission by word and deed, to select the rector, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances.
To be eligible for election to the vestry, one must be an adult confirmed communicant for at least one year prior to election who regularly attends Sunday services, is a giver of record and supports parish activities by attendance. Vestry members want to know how the church can serve its members and visitors better, so feel free to let us know your thoughts.
