Rev. Mary Kay Brown
Rev. Mary Kay Brown came to St. David's as rector in February 2009. She attended Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, VA and was ordained a priest in 2008. Mary Kay holds bachelor's and master's degrees in social work, and focused on hospice care for patients and families, and grief counseling and education for the first 20 years of her career.
As a priest at St. David's, Mary Kay is passionate about the love of Jesus and its power to transform our lives, through learning, worship, community building, prayer and outreach. She especially enjoys preaching, teaching and pastoral care – and dancing with the little ones during Sunday worship! She derives great joy from serving at St. David's, watching the Holy Spirit move and dreaming about God's future for this sacred and spirit filled place.
Rev. Mary Kay grew up in a small town near Pittsburgh, PA. She and her husband Mark Boyer met and married in Alaska, where their two children, Dylan 22 and Abby 20, were born. She likes to read, walk, listen to and make music, learn something new, and travel.
Deacon Will Packard
Assistant to the Rector
I grew up throughout the Southeastern United States and have always described my childhood as having four main facets of God, family, school and soccer. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Sewanee and have worked as the bishop’s clerk for the Rt. Rev. Peter James Lee, retired bishop of Virginia. I also spent seven years working for The Pew Charitable Trusts within their Philanthropic and Government Relations departments. Most recently, I received my Masters in Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary and was ordained to the transitional diaconate this past June. God willing and with the consent of the people, I will be ordained to the priesthood in December.
I began working at St. David’s this past June and serve in a number of capacities including worship, youth ministry, and Christian education. My wife Paige and I have lived in the Northern Virginia area since we were married and have two daughters, Emma and Libby. *Please note that all of my sermons are first heard by Chance, our 10 year old dog.
