Meet The Team
The Rev. Mo Lederman has been serving at St. John's since 2012. She previously served at St. Thomas's Church and Day School as Chaplain and Associate Rector for 10 years. She serves on several diocesan committees and volunteers each summer at Camp Washington, her home away from home.
When she is not at St. John's, she spends her time knitting, drinking tea, baking and hanging out with her husband, Bill, two children, Paddy and Nolan.
Ernie is our organist and music director. Mother Mo tries to get him to play his trombone and euphonium as often as possible because he is so multi-talented!
Rebecca Ogus is a third year seminarian at Berkeley Divinity School at Yale Divinity School and a candidate for ordination to the priesthood in the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina. After graduating from Kenyon College with a major in Women’s and Gender Studies, she spent a year with the Johnson Service Corps, the Episcopal Service Corps program in Chapel Hill, NC. An NC native and lifelong Episcopalian, Rebecca stuck around the area for a few years, worked at a social-enterprise farm serving women who were leaving prison, and entered into the discernment process. During that time she met her future husband (at church, no less); they were married in June. Rebecca is excited to spend time with and learn from St. John's during her final year of seminary!
Grace Rigby is a seminarian at Yale/Berkeley Divinity Schools. Hailing from Williamsburg, Virginia, she is excited to explore parish ministry in New England at St. John’s.
Before she started seminary, Grace graduated with a degree in Biology from the College of William and Mary where she served her local community as a volunteer EMT. Afterwards, Grace joined the Episcopal Service Corps in North Carolina where she worked with immigrants and refugees.
