The Reverend Melanie Calabrigo
Melanie is the gathering priest for St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary, an inclusive, arts-based, contemplative community, within the Parish of St. Faith’s. She is a graduate of the Vancouver School of Theology – Master of Divinity, the Pacific Jubilee Program for Spiritual Direction, and the Pacific Coast Family Therapy Training Institute. Her background is in education, family systems, pastoral care, expressive arts, and spiritual accompaniment.
Melanie has a deep and abiding belief in the radically inclusive love of God. As a priest this is the good news she is called to share. She has a passion for art, beauty, and play, and a belief that we encounter God in the sweet and challenging messiness of daily life.
