LEADERSHIP AT ALL SAINTS SACRAMENTO
Here to Guide You
REV. MICHAEL MONNOT
Michael was born in the Bay Area, and grew up there and in Fairfield. He came to the Episcopal Church as an adult, drawn by the beauty of its ritual and the intelligence of its theology. He received a bachelor’s degree in history from UC Berkeley, and a Master’s of Divinity from the Church Divinity School of the Pacific.
REV. PORTIA HOPKINS
Portia has lived most of her life in the Bay Area. She became an Episcopalian about ten years ago and was ordained in 2020, drawn by the Episcopal Church’s beautiful liturgy and commitment to social justice. She spent thirty years as a college professor before answering a call to ordained ministry. She has degrees from San Jose State University, the California Institute of Integral Studies, and Church Divinity School of the Pacific.
From a birth into an evangelical church over in Rhode Island Lachlan made their winding way to All Saints. The rich history and welcoming community drew them into the church, but the way All Saints knows how to throw a party certainly helped keep them here. Lachlan did a little bit of everything before starting work here, and does a little bit of everything for the parish now.
