HAMILTON "HAM" HOLLOWAY

Senior Warden

As a life-long Episcopalian, I’ve been involved in church life and spiritual growth for as long as I can remember. As a youngster, I enjoyed serving as an acolyte, participating in EYC activities and attending Annual Council as a youth delegate. My family has lived in Henrico and Hanover for more than 30 years and we’ve been members of St. Paul’s for more than 25 years now. I’ve enjoyed seeing my children grow spiritually at St. Paul’s and I’ve cherished teaching high school Sunday school, guiding acolytes, serving as an alternate and delegate to Annual Convention and serving three previous terms on our vestry, including as junior warden and finance director. Outside of St. Paul’s, I continue to serve as president of the Arc of Hanover; recently served nine years on the Hanover Community Services Board, including as chair of the board; continue my service in Rotary; and am part of the leadership team at Families Forward Virginia, a statewide nonprofit focused on disrupting the cycles of child abuse, neglect and poverty, two generations at a time.

SANDRA HEINS

Outreach Chair

I am so honored to once again to serve on your Vestry.  Having been a member for over 30 years, my love for St. Paul's, its members and community increases daily when I think of each of you!   This go around, am looking forward to working with our new Priest in Charge, Fr. Ben, and serving you again until 2023. 

 

My husband Tommy and I were married here in 1987 and have 2 grown children, Austin and Emily who were baptized and confirmed at St. Paul’s.  Having grown up in the Catholic church, I was received into the family here in 2008 at the same time Austin and Emily were confirmed.  Now that they are grown, I now have more time to dedicate myself to serve St. Paul's and the community wherever God calls me in whatever capacity I can.  Those who know me well know my heart is directed most by serving others just as Christ asks of us through discipleship.  I promise to uphold St. Paul's faithful support of those around us whom and will look to you to aid me as Outreach Chair.  I am so excited to see what God has in store for all of us! 

 

As always, I welcome you to reach out to me anytime to share your interest and support.

MIKE FARRELL

Register

I started attending the Episcopal Church in 1993 at Christ Church in Westerly, Rhode Island, with my future wife Katrina. The blue granite exterior, rich mahogany, and stain glass at Christ Church brought us in, and the beautiful music and liturgy kept us there. Katrina and I were eventually confirmed and married at Christ Church, and both of our daughters, Lauren and Julia, were baptized there shortly after birth. While this was the first church I attended regularly, its immense size and established congregation made it difficult to find where we fit as new members. It wasn’t until we moved to Virginia and found St. Paul’s in the Summer of 2000 that we realized what a church could be. My family has always shared in our belief of service to others and I have seen my daughter’s faith and character grow at St. Paul’s under the youth religious education and outreach programs. Both of my daughters are now grown and out on their own leading productive lives much to the thanks of the congregants of St. Paul’s. I have served on the Vestry in the past as Registrar, Outreach and Finance/Stewardship and I am again honored to be considered for service.

Currently I lead our Tuesday evening Yoga class, and I serve on the Altar Guild. My husband, Robby, and our daughter, Haley, and I live in Caroline County (Frog Level to be specific). We have three horses, two dogs, and one cat. I am fortunate to be working in my dream job as a horseback riding instructor. I enjoy riding and showing my horse, Skeeter, and practicing yoga and Reiki. I am looking forward to serving my church once again on the Vestry. St. Paul's feels like a second home to me and holds a special place in my heart. I look forward to helping our church grow and prosper!
