The Rev. Dr. Lee F. Shafer serves as the Rector of Grace Episcopal Church in Anniston. Prior to coming to Anniston, Lee was at St. John’s in Tallahassee, Florida. She was born in Alabama and graduated from Birmingham-Southern. From there she took a 20 year tour of the southeast, living not only in Florida but also Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia where she worked as a social worker and raised her two children, Trey Bauer and Holly Bauer. Lee received her Masters of Sacred Theology in 2003 from Nashotah House in Wisconsin and her Doctor of Ministry from Sewanee in 2012. She and her husband, Tom, spend most of their time with their two dogs and three cats in Anniston but love getting away to their cabin in Sewanee when they can.
