The Rev. Susan Flanders

Priest Associate

In Fall 2017, the Rev. Susan Flanders joined St. Columba's as quarter-time priest associate at St. Columba’s.

Susan provides liturgical leadership; she celebrates, preaches, teaches and participates in the life of the congregation. With wisdom born of experience, Susan offers pastoral support to all, with particular attention to those who are older and addressing life transitions and end-of-life issues. Susan is available Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

Now retired from full-time parish ministry, Susan is a regular volunteer with our Water Ministry. She worships at St. Mark's on Capitol Hill, where she served as associate before serving for many years as rector of St. John's Church, Norwood in Chevy Chase. Susan is author of "Going to Church: It's Not What You Think."
