The Reverend Marjorie Neal



Called to St.Michael’s in September of 2004, Pastor Neal received her Master of Divinity from the Lutheran Theological Seminary of Gettysburg, a Master of Sacred Theology from the Lutheran Theological Seminary of Philadelphia, and has received certification for Interim Ministry.  She received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.  Prior to attending seminary, Pastor Neal lived in Northern Virginia for twenty years.  While residing in Virginia, she had been employed by the United States Navy Department for Officers’ Promotions and Retirements, Foreign Military Sales, and then last worked for the law firm of Szabo, Quinto, Zelnick, and Erickson, P.C.


Some of Pastor Neal’s interests are in pastoral care and spirituality which led her to become trained as a Labyrinth Facilitator, receive certification in administering the Prepare/Enrich Program, teaching the PAIRS Programs, Relationship Enhancement Program, as well as offering spiritual direction  and meditation classes.  She is also experienced in designing and facilitating retreats for confirmands, women, men and church councils.
