Mother Ann Goraczko,

Resident Priest

Phone Number 305-389-6668

The Rev. Ann Reeder Goraczko, known by congregants as Mother Ann, has a long history with the church formerly known as St. Margaret’s. Her parents joined the church in 1975 while Mother Ann was away attending the University of Florida in Gainesville. Mother Ann’s mother, Linda Reeder, was the secretary to Father Tucker and Father Klein, and she remembers seeing her father Bill mowing the church lawn with his push mower. Ann, her husband Tony, son Anthony and daughter Anna, joined St. Margaret’s in 2002, and after attending the Diocesan School and with the support of the congregation, she was ordained as a deacon in 2010. She was ordained as a priest in 2013. Mother Ann worked at FIU in several departments and retired as a Faculty Researcher in 2011. Her various ministries over the years include Episcopal Campus Minister at FIU’s Biscayne Bay Campus, Hospice Chaplain for VITAS, Health Care Chaplain at Memorial Regional Hospital, where she still serves as a Staff Relief Chaplain, and Associate Rector of St. Bernard de Clairvaux Episcopal Church in the Ancient Spanish Monastery. Some of the ministries that she began at St. Bernard were the Community of Hope International, a training program for lay chaplains, and a Prayer Shawl Ministry. Mother Ann is honored to serve what is now known as the Church of the Epiphany as priest-in-residence as the congregation discerns what God has in store going forward. One of Mother Ann’s spiritual heroes is the late Archbishop Emeritus of South Africa, Desmond Tutu, who joyfully reminded us that “God is a God of surprises!”
