Canon Precentor
The Reverend Canon Holly Herring

The Rev. Canon Holly Herring graduated from Transylvania University in Kentucky in 1989 with a degree in Business Administration and received her Master in Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary in 2008 (where she and the dean, The Very Rev. Troy Mendez, studied together). Among her passions is teaching God’s people how to connect the manner in which they have been created and continue to be formed with the manner in which they serve as disciples of Jesus Christ in the world.

Holly brings extensive experience in parish ministry, organizational skills, newcomer integration, family systems, a grounded and lively faith, a warm personality, and a strong passion for proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She and her husband, Darren, enjoy traveling, cooking, reading, theatre, symphony, and family time. Darren serves as a staff singer in the chamber choir of All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Phoenix, where Holly has served since arriving in Arizona in 2014. Prior to joining her mother, Kay, and brother, Brad, here in Phoenix, Holly served as the rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Franklin, Pennsylvania.

Holly and Darren’s constant companion is a loyal Labrador retriever, Siena (St. Catherine of Siena, to be sure).
