Reverend Tracy J. Wells Miller, Rector

Mother Tracy, as she prefers to be called, comes to us from St. Cuthbert’s in Oakland, where she has been serving as long-term supply priest for the past year. Prior to that, she was associate priest for adult education and outreach at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Franklin, Tenn.

Mother Tracy is originally from South Carolina and attended seminary at Sewanee, TN.

Mother Tracy is passionate about assisting lay people in discerning their gifts and how God is calling them to use those gifts in the world. Some of her strongest callings in her own ministry are standing in solidarity with marginalized communities (people experiencing homelessness, LGBTQ people, racial and ethnic minorities) and bringing people together across divides, particularly through interfaith dialogue. She holds a Master of Theological Studies in World Religions and Interfaith Dialogue from Harvard Divinity School and has been an active leader in the national interfaith community for the past 15 years.

Mother Tracy received her Master of Divinity in 2012 from The School of Theology at Sewanee: The University of the South. She was ordained to the priesthood on June 24, the feast day of St. John the Baptist!

Mother Tracy will begin work at St. John’s on May 1 and her first Sunday with us will be May 7. She is married to Thomasjohn Wells Miller.
