The Rev. Lauren T. McLeavey, Class of 2013, has been called as rector of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Port Washington, New York. A native of Massachusetts, McLeavey was heavily involved in church youth activities. After high school, she attended Syracuse University and was the president of the Episcopal Campus Ministry there.
After graduating from college, McLeavey moved to Queens and joined Zion Episcopal Church in Douglaston, where she taught Sunday School, was on the Vestry, and became Senior Warden at age 25. After graduation and ordination, she served on Long Island for three years as Priest in Charge of Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Great River, and Curate at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Islip. In 2016, she moved with her family back to Massachusetts where she became the rector of St. Anne’s in North Billerica, Massachusetts until being called to St Stephen’s.
McLeavey said, “I am looking forward to getting to know everyone at St. Stephen’s and to start my ministry in and around Port Washington.”
