The Rev. Elizabeth Felicetti, Rector

Elizabeth began her ministry at St. David's in February 2011. Her ministry passions are preaching and teaching, and outside of church her interests include writing, books and ukuleles.  She has earned her Master of Fine Arts in Writing at Spalding University and a Master's degree in Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary in 2007. 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 an insane 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.

The Rev. Bill Jones, Deacon

Bill has served St. David's twice, first from 1993 to 1996, and then from 2006 to the present. Bill's passions include prison ministry and service to non-profit organizations such as "Home Again," an agency dealing with homeless men, women, and children, which presented Bill with the Ann and Don King Community Leadership Award in 2017. Bill and his wife Lynn love our St. David's family and consider our parish to be their permanent church home.

Bonnie Blaylock, Director of Music

In April 2002, Bonnie began working with the music ministry at St. David's.  She loves every style of music, from bluegrass to opera, which makes her well-suited to lead our two diverse choirs (one contemporary and one traditional). She attended VCU, majoring in music. In December 2011, she passed the CPC exam (medical coding). 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.

Her family loves animals and have rescued several kitties who now call the Sylvester house their home.
