She received the degree of Master of Divinity and was ordained to the diaconate in 1988 and to the priesthood in 1989. She served the Seminary of the Southwest as an adjunct lecturer and tutor in theology, as seminary chaplain, and on its board of trustees.
Anne has served as associate rector and rector in several churches in central Texas. Since retiring in 2005, she has served as a supply priest in this area.
Save the Date - Sunday, July 30 ... !!!
On this Sunday we will be thanking and celebrating Reverend Anne Hoey who has been our Interim Rector as we searched for a new full-time Rector.
Please plan on staying after the church service on July 30 to enjoy a wonderful Eggs Benedict Brunch prepared by the Gentleman of the church to celebrate The Reverend Anne Hoey and for her leadership and commitment during our transition.
Our new Rector, Madeline Hawley, will be with us, beginning August 1.

Our Walking Trail -
One of the most popular areas of the church is the walking trail, which depicts the Stations of the Cross and is used during our Good Friday service. There is always a breeze up on the hill, reminding us of the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Our Church -
Our lovely church sits on a small hill looking over the Barton Creek Preserve, giving us a spectacular view of the surrounding area. We continue to enhance the beauty of the grounds with plantings of native Texas wildflowers.
