The Reverend Giulianna Cappelletti Gray, Rector

The Reverend Gray is our current rector. She is married to Peter, also an Episcopal Priest, who serves as the rector of the Episcopal Church of the Nativity in Greenwood. Together they have two young children: Joseph (6) and Francesca (3).

Giulianna grew up in the hills of West Virginia. She attended Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio for college. While at Xavier, she studied social work and vocal music. Giulianna furthered her training in social work at Tulane in New Orleans, earning a Masters in Social Work in 2002. While working as a clinical social worker with children and families in New Orleans, she discerned a call to the priesthood. She was sent to seminary at the Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia.

While in seminary, Giulianna met her husband Peter, a native Mississippian. Giulianna and Peter married a few days after they graduated from seminary in 2008. They were called back to New Orleans where they served as priests in different parishes for about 5 years. Giulianna was the Episcopal campus minister for Tulane and Loyola Universities. She also pastored a small congregation. Peter served a Latino congregation, and later served as an associate priest on the staff of Trinity, New Orleans.

The Grays enjoy the meaningful work God has given them to do here in the Delta. They delight in the warmth and hospitality of the people of the Mississippi Delta!
