The Rev. Deacon Sharon Williams
The Rev. Deacon Sharon Williams is a senior this year at Virginia Theological Seminary. She began her field placement with St. Paul's on September 17, 2017 and will be with us until May 7, 2018. Sharon’s Bio
I am a native Floridian, born in Sarasota, Florida but lived in Fort Myers for ten years before finally settling in Miami, Florida. Prior to attending Virginia Theological Seminary for formation to the Priesthood, I was an educator/administrator for Miami Dade County Public Schools for twenty-two years. Earning a BA in English and a MA in Early Childhood Education from Florida State University allowed me the opportunity to be an effective educator for inner-city students. In May 2017 I will earn yet another degree, Masters of Divinity. It is my prayer that while here at St. Paul’s I will be an effective teacher and preacher by God’s grace.
The Rev. Elizabeth W. Tomlinson
A native of Atlanta and a cradle Episcopalian, Liz has been active in the Episcopal Church all her life. When she married her college sweetheart, they created a family that includes a girl and two boys. Liz returned to school in mid-life and earned a Masters in Social Work at Virginia Commonwealth University in 1991.
After becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Liz opened a private practice in psychotherapy in Manassas. To augment her income, she taught Social Work at George Mason University. After fourteen years in private practice, Liz finally answered a lifelong call to ordained ministry and earned a Masters in Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary in 2014. In June of that year, she accepted a call to serve as deacon at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Bailey’s Crossroads and after her ordination to the Sacred Order of Priests in September, she became the Priest-in-Charge. In the spring of 2017, the Vestry called Liz to be the Rector of St. Paul's and she accepted the call.
Liz enjoys her family (which now includes two in-law children and four grandchildren), long lunches with old and new friends, movies from every era, the theater and gardening. Tennis has fallen by the wayside, but Liz is still an avid walker...........just a little slower now!
