SHARON CHAPEL'S RECTOR
FR. CAYCE RAMEY
Father Cayce believes social justice and racial reconciliation are at the heart of the Gospel and that discipleship and lay leadership are the foundation of a vibrant parish. He believes our church can and must be a community where all are invited and welcomed and where questions, doubts, fears, joys, hopes, dreams, and challenges are shared freely.
Fr. Cayce came to Sharon Chapel in September of 2014 after serving as Associate Rector at St. Alban's Episcopal in Annandale, VA. He graduated in 2012 from Virginia Theological Seminary where he completed an honors thesis on how inter-generational memories of slavery shape contemporary Christian faith. Prior to seminary, Fr. Cayce worked as a systems engineer and business development manager at a tactical satellite communications startup and at Northrop Grumman. Before his business career, Fr. Cayce spent six years as a US Marine Corps Communications Officer, serving in Virginia, Japan, and Iraq.
He graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he met his wife of 18 years, Elinor. Elinor is a graduate of Wellesley College and Georgetown Law School and an attorney for the US Department of the Treasury. They have two boys, a first-grader and a sixth-grader both of whom can been found either in the All Saints Atrium or in one of the trees around the parish.
Fr. Cayce is passionate about cycling, photography, learning and applying Systems-Centered Theory, and is one half of the “Racial Heresy” podcast (www.racialheresy.com or iTunes).
