The Rev. Sandra Jones has served as Deacon at St. Mary’s since June of 2015. She grew up on the East Coast and moved her way across the country while serving in the US Army and being married to a career officer; they eventually settled in Utah in 1996. She and Rob are still married and have two grown sons and two grandchildren.
Sandra graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in History and received her theological training through the Diocese of Utah Ministry Formation Program. In addition, she completed four units of CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) training at St. Mark’s Hospital, SLC. She was ordained into the Sacred Order of Deacons in June 2013.
As a Deacon, Sandra is an active member of CORC (the Coalition of Religious Communities), an organization that brings together people of various faith traditions to help promote solutions to hunger, homelessness and poverty in Utah, and a member of the Association of Professional Chaplains. Along with the Rev. Aimee Altizer, she is one of the developers of Flourish Bakery, a nonprofit social enterprise that provides a paid apprenticeship in the art and skills of professional baking to those in recovery from substance use disorders, often reintegrating their lives after a period of incarceration.
