Richard Storey

Richard has had many leadership roles at St. Francis over the years.

  I am very excited over an opportunity to serve as a member of St. Francis Episcopal Church Vestry! This would be a truly humbling experience for me. As a parishioner during the period prior to building our church, I became part of the leadership team that assisted in making the transition to our beautiful new church structure successful. Since that time, we have added a Parish Hall and significantly expanded our overall Outreach Programs.  

With key leadership experiences over the years including recently serving as a member of the St. Francis, Finance Committee, Chairman of the 2020 Stewardship Committee, and a member of the Weekly Offering Accounting Team I have gained valuable knowledge of our many Programs and Services. This has afforded me significant growth and expertise in the areas this position requires. In retirement, I am now in a position to have the time talent and with great enthusiasm to serve God, this great congregation and the surrounding community in a way that has never been possible for me in the past.  

Together we can help our strong and highly significant ministry bring Gods word and gifts to our congregation, the Great Falls Community and beyond. This last year has been challenging! We have met new opportunities head-on and now we will transition into the “New Normal” over the months ahead. This is a significant time in our church history and being part of this growth experience is significant and quite frankly Unbelievable!
