St. Peter’s Deacon

The Reverend Philene M Ware Dunn, Deacon

Philene first joined us at St. Peter’s as a Mid-Atlantic Intern in December 2019.  At the end of her two-month internship, Philene continued with us serving as a volunteer assistant to the Rector.  In May, she graduated with a Master in Divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary.  Ordained to the transitional diaconate on June 16, 2020, Philene subsequently was appointed by Bishop Susan Goff to continue serving at Saint Peter’s.  Philene has proven to be a valuable resource to us during the COVID-19 Pandemic.  We look forward to her continued work with us, particularly in the area of pastoral care, until the time that she is ordained to the priesthood.  Philene and her husband, Paul, enjoy the blessings of four adult children, two grandchildren, and four rambunctious kittens.
