The Rev. Canon Barbara J. Price


I joined the Episcopal Church as an adult and raised my kids at St. John’s, Wilson, where I played the organ. At that time I was a registered nurse with an undergraduate degree in administration. Skipping forward, I began serving as Diocesan Administrator and Clergy Deployment Officer on the staff of Bishop Bowman in 1989. Eventually I went to seminary and was ordained a priest in 1997. I continued to work for the Diocese and to do various interim ministries for a while before I went to Bexley Hall Seminary in Rochester to teach. I taught Anglican Formation and congregational and leadership development for about eight years. For much of that time I was also the part-time Rector of St. Peter’s Church in Eggertsville, a position from which I ‘retired’ a few years ago.


Today, I serve as Priest-in-Charge with our "Spiritual Covenant" parish, St. John's, Youngstown as well as St Paul's. I also serve as Director of the Hope Center, a place that hosts 12-Step recovery meetings and activities that support recovery. As a Priest Associate at St. Paul's, Cathedral, I am responsible for coordinating the daily noon Eucharists during the week.


I’m a spiritual director and have led and taught programs for training others to serve as spiritual directors through Morningstar Ministries, which offers spiritual direction and retreats. I am a member of the Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross, a woman’s prayer society, an avid reader and gardener, and I love to knit and crochet. My husband Alfred and I have four grown children and nine grandchildren.
