Our Staff

Our Rector

Rev. Deby Adinolfi is the third Rector of St. Teresa's and comes to us with a diverse business background and a Cambridge University education in Theology!  She is passionate about helping others to grow in their faith and believes in the importance of developing a personal relationship with God through daily prayer and other spiritual practices. When she isn't at church, you might find her hiking - capturing God's creation with her camera, or you might find her baking, or maybe even knitting.  You can follow Rev. Deby's blog here. You can email Rev. Deby at rector@stteresasacworth.com.
