Meet the New Vicar
Holy Comforter Family,
We are excited to announce that the Bishop has appointed the Rev. Ashley Lytle Carr to be our vicar. Ashley starts on December 8 and will remain vicar for a minimum of two years.
Ashley was ordained to the priesthood in 2015 here in the Diocese of Atlanta. She received her M. Div. from Candler School of Theology at Emory University. Since ordination, Ashley has served at Holy Trinity Parish in Decatur, Interim Vicar at Church of the Common Ground, and Associate Rector at St. Benedict's Episcopal Church.
A note from Ashley:
Holy Comforter has been a bright spot in my heart since I was a summer intern there during seminary in 2013. During that summer I got to know some of you, and I developed a keen interest in the uniquely holy work you all do together. Holy Comforter is an incredibly special parish that I am so grateful to come to know better as your vicar. My wife, Megan, and I are looking forward to getting to know each of you as we all begin the next chapter in the life of this dear church. When we're not at church, you'll find us around East Atlanta eating great food, or outside with our two dogs Fin and Charlie.
We are grateful to the Diocese for their appointment of Ashley, and we feel the Diocese’s deep commitment to Holy Comforter, the Friendship Center, and Ashley during this time of difficult transition.
Please prepare to welcome the Rev. Ashley Lytle Carr on December 8.
