The Diocese Welcomes the Rev. Katherine H. Byrd
The Diocese welcomes the Rev. Katherine H. Byrd as the new rector of St. Paul's, Smithfield. Prior to Smithfield, Byrd served as priest-in-charge at St. Francis, Goldsboro, in the Diocese of East Carolina. Before coming to North Carolina, she served in ministry in the Dioceses of Milwaukee and Kentucky. Byrd is a graduate of Randolph Macon College in Ashland, Virginia, and she earned her M. Div. from Virginia Theological Seminary.
We welcome Byrd; her husband, Drew; and their three children to the Diocese!
Everliving God, strengthen and sustain Kate, that with patience and understanding she may love and care for your people; and grant that together they may follow Jesus Christ, offering to you their gifts and talents; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
