Redeemer Vestry & More

Church leadership is called The Vestry. Think of it as a board of directors for the goings-on of the church. The vestry participates in day-to-day church business, they represent the church in official matters, and members also participate in church services in various ways. In the words of one Vestry member, "I think the goal of our vestry is simply to do everything possible to keep the doors open so that all of us who love Redeemer so much can continue to do the work God has asked us to do."

Rene Murdo

I was born and raised in Mobile, just about all of my family lives here, and I graduated from Davidson High School.  I lived many years of my life in California and moved back home when my husband and I lost everything in the Camp Fire, 2018, in Paradise, California.

I am happy to be back home and to have found a wonderful, welcoming spiritual home at Church of the Redeemer.  It is true, "Everyone is Welcome".

The Church of the Redeemer has been my church family for 33 years.  I have served on the Altar Guild since the beginning and it has been a true blessing for me to serve.  I have two children, three grandchildren and a dog named Lady.  I retired from Providence Hospital and retirement is awesome!

My son Daniel and I moved to Mobile in 1990 after I married my husband, Eddie. We soon found Redeemer and have been members since 1993. I taught elementary school for 17 years and was an administrator in the Mobile County School System for 17 years. Now retired, I enjoy serving others by participating in outreach ministries such as the Food Pantry and Family Promise. I am so very proud of our church where everyone is welcome.

Betty Moak

I made the move to Mobile 7.5 years ago from the Mississippi Gulf Coast after the death of my husband and to be near my son.  I am a retired educator and have spent a lifetime performing musically.  Having been a voice major in college, I  sing with the choir here at Redeemer and belong to a local teacher's society and serve there also.  As head of the vestry's evangelism committee, our church members greet people each Sunday as they arrive for services.  I also am a member of the Order of the Daughters of the King, an intercessory prayer order for women in the Episcopal Church, where it gives me great joy to wear the cross of the order and daily lift up the names to God that come to me as I live and move in my daily life.  I am grateful to have found great joy in service and a home and family here at Redeemer.
