Mother Ronnie was installed as the Third Rector of St. Patrick’s in May 2015.  She graduated from The School of Theology at the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, and was ordained in 2007.  She is married to Max and they have two grown sons and daughters-in-law and two adorable grandsons.  Bentley, their young English Springer Spaniel competes with the grandsons for their love and attention!  

Prior to ordination Ronnie worked part-time for a local optometrist and was involved in several diocesan ministries such as Cursillo and Happening.  She served as the Interim Summer Camp Director of Camp Weed Summer Camp of 2003 and as the Lay Director for Breakout!, a retreat ministry for older elementary children for several years (yes, she lost count).  It is easy to see how much she loves children and youth (and adults as well!).

Ronnie currently serves on the Board of Examining Chaplains and is a mentor for the Diaconal Formation and Training in the Diocese of Florida.  She also serves on the Community Advisory Board of Haven Hospice.


The Rev. Thomas R. Shaver
Fr. Tom Shaver, Priest Associate

Fr. Thomas R. Shaver, was ordained in the Diocese of Los Angeles as a “mid-life vocation” after a career in government and law. Before retiring to St. Johns, he served parishes in Southern California and the Diocese of Southern Ohio. He is a graduate of Miami (Ohio) University, Stanford Law and the Church Divinity School of the Pacific. Fr. Tom (or “Tom” as he likes to be called by adults) has been married to Marylin for 54 years. They have three grown sons, two each of grand- and great grand-daughters, and resident feline (Ninja”), of all of whom they are most fond. We are blessed to have Fr. Tom and Marylin as part of our St. Patrick’s family.

Rose came to St. Patrick’s in October of 2010 and serves as our multi-functioning Woman-of-All-Things in the parish office.  She enjoys several hobbies including knitting for the St. Patrick’s Shawl Ministry and reading.  She is also active in her own church and, we are sure, very appreciated there, as she is at St. Patrick’s!  Thank you, Rose, for your loving care for the St. Patrick’s family.
