Greetings from Allison Mackenzie Caudill
The Ordination of the Rev. Allison Mackenzie Caudill
We will provide spiritually generous fellowship where all can worship, be nurtured and shepherded through life.
To my dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Peace be with you! I am excited to meet you and join in your ministry to God’s people at St. Luke’s and in the world around you. My name is Allison Mackenzie Caudill, and I am a daughter of the Diocese of Kentucky and the city of Louisville. I was raised at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in the Highlands, and my life has been changed and enriched by the ministry of All Saints Camp and Conference Center. In these two places I learned how to love and praise God in word, worship, and community. My community grew while attending Murray State University, where I was deeply involved in and formed by the Episcopal College Fellowship, a campus ministry of our diocese.
I first discerned God’s call on my life at a youth retreat at All Saints when I was fifteen years old. The camp staff, chaplains, and diocesan staff helped me to hear and respond to God and understand the shape my life would take as I followed this call to serve God’s people. The people of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Murray, KY discerned my call to ministry and walked with me as I wrestled with whether this call would lead to ordination. Amidst these prayerful people, I was affirmed in my gifts and the movement of the Spirit led me to work toward an early graduation so that I could continue to explore my call in the context of a parish internship. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature, I began my work as the Interim Camp Director for the diocese and joined our Cathedral staff as a ministry intern. At the end of my time at All Saints Camp and at the Cathedral, I moved to Sewanee, TN to begin my seminary education at the St. Luke’s School of Theology at the University of the South!
I am the oldest of three sisters, and the proud parent of two precious dogs. I have a 10-year-old Siberian Husky named Maia, and a 2-year-old Great Pyrenees mix named Tucker. Both are spoiled rotten and keep me on my toes! I rediscovered a love of music while in seminary and am an amateur but enthusiastic gardener. While Sewanee has been a wonderful place to live, I am very much looking forward to returning to my hometown. I am particularly excited to be back in the vicinity of Heine Bros Coffee and Trader Joe’s! I am, above all, thrilled to be joining you at St. Luke’s. Those of you that I have already had a chance to meet have shown me what a hospitable and joyful community you are, alive with the Holy Spirit. I can’t wait to get to know y’all!
Your Sister in Christ,
Allison Mackenzie Caudill
