 musically gifted, and is looking forward to working with Elton and our entire

 youth.

He was raised in New Orleans, a melting pot with a cross cultural and multilingual heritage. His father was an Episcopal priest. He lived in Kenya, about 2 years, as a Peace Corps volunteer and while employed by ActionAid. He has been at St. George’s in D.C. for the last 6 years.

  

Julie II

 Deacon Julie Petersmeyer

Julie was ordained by Bishop Mariann Budde in the Diocese’s first diaconal cohort on September 30, 2017. Julie’s role as a deacon is to serve as a bridge between the world  and the church. She seeks to bring the needs and concerns of the world to the parish  and to encourage parishioners to engage in outreach and advocacy.  Julie assists  parishioners in discerning their individual calls to servant ministry and seeks to develop collaborative ministries with Episcopal parishes and other faith communities. At worship Julie models servant ministry by setting the table for the priest at Eucharist; she connects the needs of the world to the church by reading the Gospel and inviting the confession; and at the dismissal Julie sends the people out into the world to love and serve God. During the week Julie is involved in prison ministry and advocacy. She has been involved in prison ministry for fifteen years and she currently serves as a chaplain at the DC Jail. She is active member of ReThink Justice DC – a community advocacy coalition that is committed to reshaping criminal justice in DC.  Julie received her M.Div. from Wesley Theological Seminary in 2003 and completed Clinical Pastoral Education at Sibley Hospital.  In 2017, Julie and Gregg and celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary; they have four children and six glorious grandchildren.

  

Elton_King_webDirector of Music

Elton King - In a single moment music at Transfiguration was transformed. At the invitation of a parishioner, Elton visited Transfiguration and quietly found himself a seat in the choir loft. Midway through the service as the congregation began to sing the most wonderful music came from the loft.  The Rector strained to see what was going on as the congregation swung their heads around to try to see what was happening. Their answer was that Elton had begun to play. 30 years later, we are blessed with his sharing of his musical gifts, his wonderful, kind and generous spirit.  

 

ATKINS-DIANE-2

Parish Administrator

Dianne Atkins, Parish Administrator, came to Transfiguration after a career as a consultant working for companies that interacted with government agencies such as BATF, USDA and USTPO. Her work entailed product formulation approval, service and trademark searches and applications. She worked on the development of well-known product names like Doritos and WindJammer Cruises. She also worked for Martin Marietta data systems as an executive secretary. At Transfiguration, she functions as parish adminstrator, office manager, and go-to person for the congregation, clergy, wardens, staff and tenant groups. In what spare time she has, she spins fiber and knits the yarn she creates, exhibting her craft at Sheep to Shawl competitions. She is blessed with 2 grandchildren and one very large Great Pyrenees, Aristotle. Her smile is contagious and her extraordinary care of Transfiguration is above the call of duty.
