This Sunday, Josephine Hicks will preach at both the 8:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. liturgies.

Join us on Sunday, as we celebrate the feast of Christ the King and learn more about supporting the important work of Episcopal Relief & Development.

Josephine, a parishioner at St. Peter’s for many years, has served as Episcopal Relief & Development’s Vice President for Episcopal Church Programs since January 2018. In this role, she oversees and provides strategic leadership to the newly-developed department, Episcopal Church Programs, with the goal of deepening the organization’s programs and engagement within the Episcopal Church. Episcopal Church Programs includes the US Disaster Program, Engagement and Episcopal Asset Map teams. Working closely with her colleagues, Josephine will develop programs and resources to meet the needs of Episcopal dioceses, congregations, networks and individuals.

Prior to joining the organization, Josephine was a member of the Board of Episcopal Relief & Development. She served as Church Attorney for the Episcopal Church and handled investigations and ecclesiastical disciplinary proceedings under the Canons for the Episcopal Church. Her other church leadership positions include serving as a member of the Church’s Executive Council and General Convention Deputy for the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina. She also was a member of the Joint Nominating Committee, which conducted a search for Presiding Bishop, and as the lay representative from the Episcopal Church to the Anglican Consultative Council. Her relationship with the Church and the work of Episcopal Relief & Development are important ways that she lives out her faith.

Prior to joining Episcopal Relief & Development, Josephine was trial lawyer and has 30 years of experience litigating disputes for a wide range of clients, including public utilities, manufacturers and other businesses. Most recently, she was a partner with Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein, LLP in Charlotte, North Carolina.
