Hello, my name is Rachel Downs and I am in
my second year of the Masterís of Divinity program at Yale Divinity School,
where Iím also looking to receive an Anglican Studies diploma.
I grew up in Shelton, CT and am a life-long Episcopalian.
I became passionate about the church after going to General Convention in 2006,
and there I discerned a call to ministry. Since then I have served as a deputy
and an alternate deputy to the last two General
Conventions and as a member of the Episcopal Youth Event Design Team.
I am looking forward to my first time interning in a parish.
