Local Church Helps Grad Pick Career Path

“As a senior, I attended All Saints’ Episcopal Church on Market Street. At the church, I regularly participated in worship leadership as a lector and a reader of the Prayers of the People. I also had two chances to deliver messages during services. This taste of preaching showed me an invigorating and meaningful way to apply the skills I was gaining in my religion classes. These experiences inspired me to reevaluate my plans to become a religion scholar and consider working within a church context. Without All Saints’, I may not have ended up serving with the Episcopal Service Corps after graduation or studying at Yale Divinity School.” - Megan McDermott ’14
