St. Luke's Anglican Catholic Church
Serving Fredericksburg and the
Central Rappahannock Region since 1988
The Rev'd Fr. Jeffrey Edmunds, Rector
Fr. Jeffrey Edmunds was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop William McClean, Jr., on April 2, 2011, and instituted the fourth rector of St. Luke's Anglican Catholic Church six weeks later.
He's a graduate of the DMAS Scott School of Theology, having earned a Licentiate in Theology.
He's also earned degrees from the University of Virginia (BA), Florida State University (MLS), and the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School (JD). He practiced law in Virginia for many years prior to his ordination, and was, at one point before all of that, a civilian employee of the United States Navy, 6th Fleet.
He's published several scholarly articles in The Journal of Fredericksburg History, and served on the board of directors of the Historic Fredericksburg Foundation, Inc. (HFFI)
He's been married to Rachel Hughes Edmunds since July 17, 1982, and they are the proud parents of two grown sons.
Every three years or so since 2012 Fr. Edmunds has flown to Europe and 'unplugged from the grid' for a month by escorting pilgrims on the 'Camino de Santiago' (a/k/a 'The Way of St. James') -- a 500 mile medieval pilgrim's path that runs from rural southern France to the shrine of St. James the Apostle at Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain. He's planning another such pilgrimage in 2019 or 2020 -- and looking for walking companions!
