I am very excited to announce that William Temple House has hired The Rev. Marianne Allison as our new Chaplain and Coordinator of Spiritual Care. We are very grateful to the Episcopal Bishop of Oregon Foundation for a grant that will underwrite this 20 hours per week position. As many of you know, Marianne recently completed her studies in theology and was ordained in the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon in June.
In her new role, Marianne will help us fulfill our promise to provide holistic mind-body-spirit care to those living at the economic and social margins of our community. She will also help us strengthen our relationships with each of you and your faith communities as together we respond to the call for more accessible, active and coordinated social ministries.
We are very fortunate to have Marianne join our team; after much mutual discernment, we believe that William Temple House and Marianne is a match made in heaven, and we look forward with great anticipation to the many fruits this relationship will bear.
