Anderson to Lead St. Mary’s Sewanee

In early September, the Rev. E. Lucius “Andy” Anderson III will become the fourth executive director of St. Mary’s Sewanee: The Ayres Center for Spiritual Development. Anderson has served as rector of the Church of the Nativity in Huntsville, Alabama, since 2003.

“Andy is absolutely the right person to take on these duties at this time,” said R. Dale Grimes, president of the center’s board of trustees. “He brings to St. Mary’s Sewanee his extensive experience in spiritual development programming and activities, service to and leadership in the Episcopal Church, financial and administrative acumen, and significant and proven fundraising ability. We are excited about the possibilities for our future with Andy as our executive director as we enter a new phase of growth in programming and campus development.”

“I first experienced St. Mary’s as a thin holy place of spiritual connection to God on an Advent Quiet Day my first year at the School of Theology in 1991,” Anderson said. “I returned to St. Mary’s many times during seminary years to know the quiet and refreshment from the beauty of holiness St. Mary’s offers.”
