Deacon Midge Pendergast

The Reverend Dr. Margaret “Midge” Pendergast is a licensed psychologist with many years of experience in schools and in private practice. She is an ordained deacon whose role in worship service is to proclaim the Gospel, assist the priest at the Eucharist, and on occasion preach from the pulpit. Her ministry reaches far beyond Sunday services, however. She formed, trains, and heads up the healing prayer team at Christ Church; does pastoral counseling; makes hospital and home visits; counsels grieving families; and officiates at funerals along with Fr. John. The Celtic services are just one of many ways she puts her considerable creative talents to use reaching out to the community with the beauty and warmth of God’s love. She is also quite active in the Diaconate and in regional and national church events.
