The Rev. Catherine Wagar

Deacon, St. Philip the Evangelist

2012-2017: Deacon, St. Philip the Evangelist, South LA. Chaplain, Olive View UCLA Medical Center. 2009-present: Housing and social support ministry to political asylum-seekers.

Canterbury USC is an exemplary young adult ministry which, besides providing spiritual support to USC students, also extends into the community with music (MiX) and Dream Haven, a residential program for young adults “in transition”.  Deacons appreciate and bring energy to the synapse between church and the world. St. Philip’s has been a partner for many years; it would be a privilege to assist in continuing development of this ministry.
