We are pleased to have Reverend Susan Barnes serve us. A native of Houston, Susan Barnes studied art history at Rice University and NYU. She was an art museum curator and administrator in Washington, D.C., Raleigh, Dallas, and Houston. She continues to write, speak and consult on the paintings of Anthony Van Dyck. After she was called to the priesthood, she received her M. Div. from Seminary of the Southwest, Austin. She served at St. Matthew’s, Austin, as Associate Rector and at St. John’s, Minneapolis, as Rector. She and Claudia Helt met in Austin eight years ago, and moved to Minneapolis; they married on 12/12/12. They retired in Newport last September, and were blessed to find Emmanuel on their first Sunday.
