The Archbishop of Melbourne, the Most Reverend Dr Philip Freier has written to the Wardens confirming the appointment of the Reverend Sophia (Sophie) Watkins as Incumbent of St Silas and St Anselm, Albert Park.
Reverend Sophie is currently Vicar of St Aidan’s Parish, Strathmore, where she has been since 2008. Prior to her appointment to St Aidan’s she served as Priest in Charge of the Surfcoast Parish. She was ordained Deacon in February 1999, and ordained Priest at the end of that year.
Reverend Sophie is a single parent of daughter Esther who is two and a half years old, and Monty, her nearly 6 year old German shorthaired pointer. Prior to undertaking a Bachelor of Divinity, Reverend Sophie completed a BA in Fine Arts at RMIT.
She delights in her family, creating art and playing music, reading, and walking, swimming and gardening. We look forward to welcoming Reverend Sophie to our parish.
