Presently, I am Vice President of the Episcopal Churchwomen group in the Diocese of Connecticut. I have been on the ECW board for the past 6 years, holding several roles on the board. Annually, we have held ECW meeting which involved recognizing different groups of ECW women within the state of Connecticut for doing God’s work in the church and community. Each annual meeting draws about 300 plus members and other Episcopalians from Province 1.
As a member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in New Haven, CT, I have been active in the ECW group, The Network Guild, Christian Education, Steel Band, the choir and bible study group. Being a member of the church and active participation has given me such a self- fulfillment of doing God’s work. My purpose is to continue to share the love of God through love, evangelism and education.
From 2015-2018, as a member of the Episcopal Churchwomen, I was elected to represent Province 1 on the ECW National Board under the leadership of Mrs. Lisa Towle. This was a very adventurous and rewarding mission. We traveled the country interacting with other episcopal church women whose mission is to empower women to continue to spread God’s ministry throughout the world.
Earlier years in the church, I was called to do God’s work as youth coordinator. I helped to coordinate activities for young teens within my church and the diocese. This led to being elected to serve as Youth coordinator for Province 1. Over a period of time, we led a group of 25 plus youths to the Episcopal Youth Events (EYE) in Indianapolis, Wyoming, Kentucky, Colorado and Texas.
In my professional life, I am a lifetime educator who teaches in the Hartford Public School District in Hartford, Connecticut. My teaching career started out in Hattiesburg, MS in 1977 and over the years I developed a passion for educating students. I am a graduate of Jackson State University and the University of Connecticut. I have a great love for educating students.
Finally, in my personal life, I am the mother of 3 young men, Nicholas, Paul and Matthew and I am married to retired priest, The Rev. Dr. Victor A. Rogers.
