The Rev. Licia Affer (Class of 2008) has been called as Rector of St. Anne's Episcopal Church, Atlanta, Georgia, beginning March 30, 2014. She will be leaving her post as Associate Rector of All Saints' Episcopal Church, Phoenix, Arizona, and previously served at Trinity Cathedral in Phoenix. In her first pastoral message to her new parishoners, Affer said "I find standing at the altar an immense privilege, comparable only to the privilege of being present to others in time of transition, of grief, and of great joy. I know that parish ministry can be exhausting, exhilarating, and life-giving and, to paraphrase Paul, I know that we can do all things in Christ who strengthens us."
