Ms. Eleanor Andersen
Ministry Associate, Intern
Eleanor came to Grace Church in the summer of 2020. Prior to her ministry in Newark, she completed an Episcopal Service Corps year at Saint Mark's, Philadelphia, and also worked at Christ Church in Philadelphia while getting her degree. She originally hails from Scranton, but also lived in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as all around Philadelphia.
She holds a degree in Secondary Education from Temple University, with specializations in middle grades education and history. Although she planned to be a teacher, she's found that her educational background helpful in completing the sundry outreach, administrative, liturgical, technological, and practical duties she fulfills around the parish.
Eleanor enjoys cooking, hiking, bad movies, DnD, and is just as much of a coffee enthusiast as Father Bates.
She resides above the Parish House, in what was once the sisters apartment.
