The Rev. Amanda Sampey has announced acceptance of a position with a hospice ministry in New Hampshire, near where her family’s cottage of several generations is located. Ordained a deacon in 2011 and a priest in 2016, she was called to the part-time position of Vicar at St. James, Mosinee in 2017. For more than a decade, she was worked as a chaplain in a local hospital system providing spiritual care to patients, families and staff.
St. James' celebrated with Amma Amanda on July 10. "The members of this church family are doing great work" she shared, and thanked them for "the honor of allowing me to come together in the name of Christ to press on the kingdom." In addition to her new hospice work, she is seeking a church position in the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire.
"Her presence in a variety of diocesan ministries and elected positions reflects her commitment to the church as a whole," Bishop Matt Gunter noted. "Serving in a bi-vocational role is a challenge, and one she met well in serving the people of St. James."
