the Rev. Anna V. Ostenso Moore

The Rev. Anna V. Ostenso Moore found the Episcopal Church as a teenager. Sitting by the side of a lake in Northern Minnesota after college graduation, she felt a call to faith formation grounded in community, wonder, Holy mystery, and our Sacred Stories. That call has led her across the Atlantic Ocean and back. Her educational background includes a BA in Chinese International Studies from Middlebury College, Vermont and an MA in Youth Ministry and Theological Education from King’s College, London. She is currently the Associate Priest for Family Ministry at St. Mark’s Cathedral. She spent years reading a picture book in worship every Sunday, wondering where God was within the words and images. Her first picture book, “Today is a Baptism Day,” which she wrote to reflect the beauty of the families with whom she works, is now available. 

Wife, priest, expectant adoptive mother, daughter, sister, aunt, godparent, and friend, her greatest joys include dancing at every opportunity, a good pot of tea with her husband, David, and exploring new places with her family.
