Clergy & Staff

Elizabeth F. small.png

The Rev. Elizabeth Felicetti, Rector

Elizabeth began her ministry at St. David's in February 2011 and became bi-vocational in 2021, working here thirty hours and writing the rest of the week. Her first book, Unexpected Abundance: The Fruitful Lives of Women Without Children, is forthcoming from Eerdmans in 2023. Elizabeth’s ministry passions are preaching and Bible study, and she holds masters’ degrees in both writing and divinity.  Her husband Gary is a retired military judge who served in the U.S. Coast Guard for more than thirty years. Elizabeth and Gary have a poorly behaved rescue mutt named Pepper, who does not come to church animal blessings because she is so embarrassing. So, "What do we call a female priest?" Elizabeth prefers to be addressed by her Christian name by adults and "Pastor Elizabeth" by children and youth.  |  rector@stdavidsrva.org

The Rev. Bill Jones, Deacon Emeritus

Bill has served St. David's twice, first from 1993 to 1996, and then from 2006 to 2021.

Bill and his wife Lynn love our St. David's family and consider our parish to be their permanent church home.

Her son, Ben, is a graphics design artist with Southern Graphics and works as a liaison for Philip Morris. Her daughter, Jen, is a pharmacist for CVS.
