Our Clergy

The Rev. LouAnn Pickering, Rector

 As a child, LouAnn Pickering always knew two things – that she loved the mysterious, magical feeling of worshipping in church, and that little girls like her did not grow up to be priests.

Now that she is Rector at St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church, Mother LouAnn likes to tell the story of how her belief that ordination was an impossible dream changed in a dazzling moment of recognition of God’s presence. 

In 1985 Mtr. LouAnn became director of religious education in the Lower School at Oregon Episcopal School. Students, families and those who worked with her soon affirmed the vocation to priesthood that she had felt so long ago. She was ordained priest in 1997. In 2004, she began her ministry at St. Gabriel’s as part time Vicar, working 50% for St. Gabe’s and 50% OES. In July of 2007 she began serving St. Gabriel’s as full time Vicar, becoming Rector in 2016.

The Rev. Marianne Allison, Associate Rector

 Mtr. Marianne joined Saint Gabriel in 2016 and was ordained priest in 2017. She currently splits her time between Saint Gabriel, where she leads the youth group and directs adult education, and William Temple House where she serves as chaplain.

The Rev. Dcn. Roger Reynolds, Deacon

Dcn. Roger joined Saint Gabriel in 2016. As a deacon he has had ministries as a part time hospital chaplain, member of the board of a local organization of Police Chaplains, been a regular contributor to a religion column in the Oregonian, and most recently been active in homeless ministries.  He has led vestry retreats, Lenten programs, taught adult ed classes, assisted with Stephens Ministry training, and served as Spiritual Counselor for parish profile and rector search committees.  He has been actively involved in worship, preaching, cantoring, leading worship, even officiating at memorial services as the need arose.  This is in addition to his normal liturgical  diaconal functions of reading the gospel, setting the table and giving the dismissal.
