Rachel Iversen, Chaplain

Dear St. Francis Community,

St. Francis has been selected by Bishop Kendrick as a site for one of our School for Ministry students
to do her Clinical Pastoral Education work over the next eight months.

I present to you Rachel Shannon Iversen. Rachel is married to Craig Iversen and they have three children: Philip is a junior at5 UWF, Mary Catherine graduated in May from Berry College, and Chris
is a Freshman at Washington High School.

Rachel works as the Interim Youth Minister at Christ Church Parish, is Operations Manager for the Pensacola Bay Cruise Ferry Service, and has worked in youth ministry and church administration at Holy Cross Pensacola. She has also done studies in Leisure studies at the University of Utah and Memphis State.

I ask that you all welcome Rachel to St. Francis and get ready to support her as she begins this
journey of deepening her identity in her call to ministry formation through visitation and pastoral
care among us.
