Project Description

Laurel Marr has an extensive resume of service that gives her considerable experience in caring for those suffering, especially in end-of-life care. She has spent her time in New York working in the Episcopal Church (Calvary St. George’s Church and All Angels’ Church).  She was a reformer of the prayer ministry and the organizer for pastoral care and the senior care ministries at Calvary St. George’s Church. This work includes caring for families and patients on a pastoral level, and Laurel also gained much experience in funeral planning. Calvary Church holds an important history in the story of Alcoholics Anonymous. The Reverend Samuel Shoemaker spiritually advised Bill Wilson, and many of the steps were written in the Rector’s office (61 Gramercy Park North). Laurel’s own recovery from addiction has given her a passion for service.

Laurel is a mother to two teenagers and has lived in Manhattan for nine years. She is originally from the Southeast and spent 10 years in Colorado before living in NYC. Her life out west taught her about the considerable benefits of holistic care.  Laurel studied Systematic and Philosophical Theology at the University of Nottingham (UK) and is currently a student at General Theological Seminary in NYC.
