The  Rev. Ashley Urquidi

Priest in Charge

EMAIL

The Rev. Ashley Urquidi (Mother Ashley) comes to All Saints’ after seven years of serving as Associate Rector of Old Donation Episcopal Church in Virginia Beach. She got her MDiv from Seminary of the Southwest (Austin, TX), and her BA in psychology from Hood College (Frederick, MD). Ashley is married to Ben Urquidi, and together they have three young children: Levi, Joel, and Leia. 

 

Aside from being a wife and mother, Ashley’s greatest passion is for spreading the Gospel in new and innovative ways, breaking down barriers, and reaching the marginalized. She seeks to empower all with the love and courage of God, and tries always to lead and guide with compassion, grace, and good humor. When she’s not caring for family or parish, you can find her on the beach– likely with a book and cup of coffee or good food (from a local restaurant!)
