Elaine Patrick joined the Cathedral staff as part-time Youth Minister in January 2019. We are sharing Elaine with St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, where she serves as Formation Minister. Elaine also serves on staff at Camp Cross in the summer. Before moving to Spokane, she served for ten years as director of youth and family ministry at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in St. Petersburg, FL.
Elaine’s primary responsibility at the Cathedral is to lead the regional Senior High Youth Group, providing planning, programming, and support for the 15-22 youth who gather weekly, as well as to recruit and train adult volunteers for the youth group. Elaine also leads the regional Middle School (Junior High) Youth Group, which meets at St. Stephen’s on Sunday afternoons.
