Fr. Randall Trego
Father Randall Trego joined St. Dunstan’s community in April 2014. His great delight is to be present to offer hospitality to all people. Through his teaching and preaching, he creates a signpost for others to go beyond what the eye can see. It is his desire that all may know that nothing can separate us from God’s love.
Randall appreciates what he has gained through relationships with his mentors: The Right Rev. Hassan Dehqani-Tafti, Anglican Bishop in Iran; Henri Nouwen, professor at Harvard Divinity School; and Brother Emmanuel of Taizé, France. These friendships taught Father Randall the joy of “walking” with people in their life circumstances, the privilege of comforting those befriending death, and how to be an encouragement for the imperfectly known love of God. His ministry to our community has special focus on pastoral care: healing prayer, pastoral visitation, lay eucharistic visitation, Stephen Ministry, Petal Pushers and Feed My Flock. He also serves as chaplain for the Order of the Daughters of the King.
For Randall, broken glass shines brightest. Through the cracks of brokenness, the light of Jesus is able to penetrate our hearts to shine brightly into the world around us.

Everyone is a musician. In our culture today, we tend to think of music as the domain of an elite few, a product to be consumed. But I believe that worship, specifically music in worship, is the work of all the people, and I invite everyone – without exception – to take part in that work. Whether you can join a leadership role in worship through choral music, sing boldly in your pew, or just lend your support to the church’s music in other ways, we need your voice in our program! Get in touch with me if you’re passionate about music and want to put that passion to work for God and His people at St. Dunstan’s.”

Pastoral Care Coordinator
Harriette Ogan has been an active member at St. Dunstan’s since 1972. With her husband Jim they raised their four children here. Through the years they found the tapestry of their life woven with the many vibrant colors of thread that awakened them to know Jesus and the steady strength of the Holy Spirit. In 1995 Harriette says that she was “knocked off her horse like the Apostle Paul and realized Jesus had work for her to do.”
In 1997 Harriette was led to take the training to become a Stephen Minister and to take training of The Community of Hope. At the same time she began the ministry of Petal Pushers when asked as a new altar guild member to “throw away the flowers”. From that time on Harriette has worked tirelessly for the sake of pastoral care giving at St. Dunstan’s.
Since 2008 Harriette has been the Pastoral Care Coordinator at St. Dunstan’s. She was invited by Father Rob to become a “busy body” for Jesus. She is an amazing source of connecting parishioners to the clergy and the many ministries of pastoral care.
