Piedmont Episcopal Church is a member church of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, under the authority of the Bishop, The Right Rev. Susan Goff. Our local leadership consists of the following:

Priest In Charge, The Reverend Anne West

The Reverend Anne West began at Piedmont mid-December 2020 in the midst of a global pandemic.  She serves 1/2 time here at Piedmont and 1/2 time at Grace Episcopal Church in Stanardsville.  Anne has a passion and love of small Church ministry.  She was ordained to the Priesthood in June 1990 and has had an adventurous ministry serving in Episcopal Schools, both small and large Church settings and on several Diocesan Staffs.  Anne has one adult son, Sam, who lives and works in Richmond.  Her dearest companion these days is her fur puppy, Finn.  Starting in early July Anne will reside in the Church Parish House in Madison.


The Rev. Dcn. Kathryn Thomas, Deacon

As Deacon at Piedmont Parish, Kathryn has two passions. The first is Christian formation of children.  The second is interpreting the “needs, concerns, and hopes of the world” to the Church, which she carries out as a member of the Board of Directors for Skyline CAP,  the Youth Development Council for the underserved youth in Greene County, and formerly diocesan Race and Reconciliation Committee. She is a graduate of Mary Baldwin College (BA in Biology and Medical Technology), the Deacon Formation Institute, and the Episcopal Leadership Institute. She and her husband, Bob, have 5 children and a slew of grandchildren, and she enjoys reading science fiction, gardening, fishing, and raising orchids.



Our beloved Organist/Choir Director is The Rev. Brad Jackson.

Brad served Piedmont Episcopal Church for 18 years as their Rector.  When he retired he went to serve several other Churches but has returned home to Piedmont with his lovely wife Jaynie to offer their gifts for Church music.



Our vestry is composed of six vestry members, who are elected to three year terms. The duty of the vestry is to exercise stewardship of the physical, financial, and legal aspects of our church. Our vestry currently consists of Karen Czar(Senior Warden), Joe Parker (Junior Warden), Beppy White, Norris John, Molly Sanford, and Jaynie Jackson.  Briarley Rogers faithfully serves as our Church Treasurer.
