Katherine Lewis

Rector

Katherine has been at St. David’s since July, 2009.

She was born in Virginia and grew up in West Virginia, graduating high school in Charleston, WV. She went to college at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, majoring in Religion and Women's Studies. While there, she joined a national Christian delegation that traveled to Nicaragua during the civil war and it was there, seeing extreme poverty and wartime unrest that she witnessed a profound Christian response to suffering.

After graduation, she moved to Washington, DC where she joined the staff of a Roman Catholic-based nonprofit and was part of an effort to send humanitarian aid to Nicaragua and do public education and lobby work. She moved to Columbus, Ohio and for the next ten or so years worked in various nonprofits as a community organizer. She attended St. Stephen's, Columbus, where she began the process of discernment for ordained ministry.

She received her Master's in Divinity from Virginia Seminary and was ordained in 1996. After serving a church in eastern, Appalachian Ohio, she moved to Minneapolis to join the staff at St. Mark's Cathedral. Since being in the Twin Cities, she has served on the boards of several nonprofits. She lives in Minneapolis with her two high school aged children, Jesse and Eva.


Meg Redmond

Minister of Music

Meg Redmond has been a church musician since the age of twelve, when the anxious pastor of her home church in Rochester tapped her on the shoulder and pleaded with her to fill in for the unexpectedly absent organist. Since then, she has served congregations of various denominations – Lutheran, Moravian, UCC, and Presbyterian. Meg has appeared in recital in the US and abroad with members of elite organizations such as Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, MN Orchestra, and St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. She made her Japanese debut at the Pacific Music Festival, founded by Leonard Bernstein.

She has finished her Doctoral coursework at the New England Conservatory in Boston, where she was a full scholarship recipient. Meg is also a certified Music Together teacher, a music readiness program for children ages 0-5. She loves playing and listening to all kinds of music, with a special fondness for ragtime and Big Band.

When she's not at St. David's, Meg entertains and educates audiences through her new endeavor, "Meg's Musical Musings" in which she provides lecture recitals for group events. Her current program is "Scott Joplin: King of Ragtime".

Meg is a proud resident of Plymouth (Money Magazine #1 city!) with her husband Mark, her amazing children Molly & Miles, and her spoiled baby (dog) Maisy.
