Our Rector – Fr. Ramiro (Ram) E. Lopez
I am happy to be serving as Rector at St. George during this wonderful time in our history. I have a strong passion to help all people, especially our children, to come to know and love the Lord and to grow into the fullness of God.
Director of Worship, Music & Fine Arts
My wife, Shannon and I were first introduced to the St. George community in 2009 when I became the music teacher at the school. Since then our love for this special place has only grown. We have two daughters, Lillian and Scarlett, who are growing up with a strong faith foundation on this Christ-centered campus. Whether through the church or the school, our family is deeply involved in the St. George mission and ministry. As Director of Music & Fine Arts for the school, I get the privilege of shaping and teaching the beautiful young minds of tomorrow. With a fantastic team there that includes Shannon, we have the pleasure of seeing our students reach their artistic and musical potential. As the Director of Worship, Music & Fine Arts at St. George, I am honored to lead the many wonderful teams of believers that faithfully give of their time and talents in worship every week in order to serve this community we love so much. I love working with our church members to find a team that helps them use their time and talents for God’s glory, and to further the mission of St. George and it’s impact on the community. Among the many areas I serve on campus, I also co-lead our school’s Beta Club, which is a service and outreach honor club that leads many campus service projects. I am also the lead for our Haitian sister church and school partnership. I have a Bachelor of Music Degree from UTSA and have spent 17 years in music and ministry. I have spent time leading worship in several different denominations and worship styles including gospel and contemporary. My heart is at home here in the Episcopal tradition, as the liturgy truly speaks to me. If you are feeling called to serve and offer your talents here at St. George, feel free to give me a call or write an email. Let’s see where God is leading you to make an impact on the world!
Church Office Administrator
My wife, Suzy and I came to St. George in 2013 by an invitation from our daughter Kindra and haven’t left. Suzy and I grew up in San Antonio, but my work in the Banking industry took us to Dallas and then the Northern New Jersey / New York City metro area. We lived there with our three daughters for 18 years. During our time there, we became members of the Episcopal Church and continued that tradition when we returned to San Antonio in 2008. Now, along with Kindra, daughter number two, Kelsea, has settled in San Antonio from New Jersey as well. Along with our two daughters and five grandsons we all take part in what St. George has to offer. Our youngest daughter, Kassidy, remains in New Jersey and recently married. I received the call to become the Church Administrator in August 2017 and accepted to further serve God and his Church. I also serve as a Lector and Lay Eucharistic Minister. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the administration of St. George.
Director of Youth Formation Ministries
I am so excited to be joining the St. George Episcopal Church and School family! I grew up in San Antonio and in the Diocese of West Texas. I have a deep love and passion for the Episcopal Church and the welcoming nature of who we are as a church. I am especially passionate about providing kids with a safe and fun place to learn more about the Bible, our relationship with Our Creator and how to extend that love out to others.
I attended the University of Mississippi and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with two minors in History and English. I also received my Master’s Degree at Ole Miss in Curriculum and Instruction. I had my first teaching job in the Delta region of Mississippi and worked at the University as a recruiter for the School of Education. After my time in Mississippi, I sold my belongings and moved to a country I had recently fallen in love with—Haiti.
While in Haiti, I helped develop an ESL program and curriculum for a school in Gressier, Ouest, Haiti. I also received guardianship of two beautiful girls – Robi and Sherly. I spent three beautiful years in Haiti and just recently moved back to San Antonio this past spring. Robi and Sherly received academic scholarships to TMI- The Episcopal School of Texas and have just recently started their freshman and sophomore years.
I am beyond excited to be able to share my experiences with your community as well as the faithfulness of God that I have personally seen over and over again. I cannot wait to bring my passion and love for the Bible and our world into the classroom and share it with many of your children. I have high hopes for this school year and look forward to meeting you all!
Director of Pastoral Care
My husband, Milt and I came to San Antonio in 1982 along with our 2 children, Aaron and Alexis. We began our search for a church home in the fall and the first (and only) church we visited was St. George. In the fall of 1985 I was asked to consider taking the position of Parish Secretary to replace the lady who was retiring. I began January 2nd 1986 and worked in that position until 1990 when I became the Parish Administrator. In 2013 I took the position of Director of Lay Ministry Development, and then in September 2014 I was asked to take the position of Pastoral Care Coordinator. My work history includes being a Registered Nurse for 12 years, so I believe the Lord has placed me where He wants me to serve and I am truly blessed.
Director of Family Ministries
My husband, Bart Wilson, and I have been a part of the St. George family for 18 years. We have 12 yr. old twins, Sophie and Sully, who are in the 6th grade and attend St. George School. Together we have been active members in the St. George community. In 2011, I began working part-time for St. George Church as the Children & Family Ministries Coordinator. I strive to provide a high quality ministry that is attractive to the children and the parents of St. George Church. I coordinate and oversee our popular C 3:16 family formation class, our Children’s Chapel programs, the Kids for Christ (KFC) 3rd-5th grade ministry group, Vacation Bible School, and some of our annual Family Fellowship events including the Pancake Supper, the Epiphany Pageant, Polar Express and our Trunk or Treat. When I’m not working at the church, you can find me volunteering at many of the St. George school functions as a PTO board member, or cheering my children on at their team events. I earned my Bachelor degree from Texas A&M University in College Station and I love my Aggies! My family and I enjoy attending the Aggie sports games, hiking, traveling and spending time with family in Port Aransas.
Assistant Director of Music Ministry
St. George is our home. My husband, Keith Earle, our two beautiful daughters Lillian and Scarlett, and I have been a part of the St. George community since 2009, when Keith became one of the music teachers at St. George school and I became the private voice instructor on campus. Our love and involvement for this community only flourished in the following years, as I became the JK – 1st grade Spanish teacher and JK and SK music teacher at the school, and as Keith and I became part of the Music Ministry team here at the church. We are truly blessed to have the privilege to work for both Church and School at such a wonderful and loving place! I am a classically trained singer and perform around Texas. I also sing with the “Oh So Good Band” and play the flute. In addition to my musical pursuits, I am also a licensed cosmetologist. Keith, Lillian, Scarlett and I love playing in the backyard on our trampoline and having fun family movie nights.
I have been a member of the Saint George Church and School community since 2012 when I began working with Children’s Ministry. I currently serve by looking after little ones in the nursery on Sunday mornings and teaching pre-K and Kindergarten Children’s Chapel. I also regularly teach Safeguarding God’s Children, a class very near and dear to my heart. When not at Saint George, I teach preschool at Castle Hills First Baptist School, enjoy gardening, hiking, running, reading and spending quality time with dear friends and family, most notably my indubitably lovely nieces Lillian and Scarlett Earle. Prior to living in San Antonio, I could be found in New Braunfels, Marble Falls and the mountains of Western North Carolina where I collectively spent ten years teaching outdoor and environmental education programs. My favorite color is orange, I love to bake and find painfully strong coffee most delicious.
