Rev. Mother Diane Mead
I was born and raised in Montana. I eventually ended up in Chicago in 1969 and started working for the Sisters of the Good Shepherd at their boarding school for juvenile delinquent girls. I worked there for 4 years. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Northeastern Illinois University and a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Jane Addams College of Social Work in Chicago. I lived in Chicago for 20 years. I moved to Albuquerque, NM in 1988 and have lived there since. I became licensed as an Independent Social Worker, with a specialty in Clinical Social Work. I am currently a psychotherapist in private practice since 1992. I joined the EACA Chapel of the Holy Spirit in 2014, coming from a Catholic background.
The Chapel of the Holy Spirit has been a vibrant and active part of Albuquerque's faith community for 20+ years! Originally planted by Rev. Father Rusty Smith in 1998-1999, the chapel has grown from one or two smiling faces to many families and friends; and we continue to grow.
We've been active partners with St. Martin's Hospitality Center in outreach to Albuquerque's homeless and continue to be active participants and supporters of Albuquerque Pride.
We are located in Scottsdale Village, 3107 Eubank NE # 15, Albuquerque 87111 (Eubank and Candelaria next to Fu Yuang Chinese Restaurant).
We are an intimate inclusive Anglican-Catholic faith community within the Evangelical Anglican Church in America. We believe in the sacredness of all creation and welcome all to our worship. Holy Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday morning at 11:00am.
The Evangelical Anglican Church (EACA) is a denomination created within the Anglican Catholic tradition within the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. Though not in full communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury, the titular head of the Anglican Communion, the EACA shares with the Communion similar expressions of polity, doctrine and worship. The EACA currently uses the New Zealand prayer book, and in all religious expression gives special attention to respecting all gender identities through the use of inclusive language in worship.
The EACA holds the sacred validity of orders that have been preserved through the unbroken chain of historically attested and affirmed apostolic succession. Our sacraments are valid and offered to all of the People of God with respect for the diversity of creation as the cornerstone of God’s lavish love and welcome for all.
We are a church that includes and affirms the identities and experiences of all God’s people. We are people of diverse backgrounds, identities and orientations. We are a welcome home for those who have been marginalized or feel unwelcomed by the "Church". Our sacraments are open to all!
