Cara Modisett Farewell

This August, Cara Modisett began her studies at Virginia Theological Seminary as a postulant for priesthood in the Diocese of Southwest Virginia. We are very grateful for all the wonderful ways Cara Modisett contributed to St. John’s during her two years as communications director. She was part of the Record and website redesigns, created and built the We Gather blog, and grew the church’s social media presence. In addition, she built the church’s photo inventory, created devotionals to accompany journey groups, worked with the stewardship and capital campaign teams, and led journey groups. She also performed with soprano Marlayna Maynard in a Music on the Corner concert and taught and co-taught Sunday morning classes, including moderating a panel on faith and politics with guests Sam Rasoul, Joe Cobb, and Lauren Colliver. Barbara Johnson wrote, “Cara co-mentored the EfM group with me for the 2018-2019 session and brought to the group energy, thoughtful reflection, encouragement to dare to think in different ways, and many laughs. We will miss her this year!” Indeed, we miss her! May God bless her and keep her as she continues her studies at VTS and her ministry.
