Cathie Dainton Piacente
Office Administrator

Cathie Dainton Piacente

I am a cradle Episcopalian and was confirmed at St. Paul's (Willimantic, CT) when Rev. Douglas Theuner was our Priest. He later became the The Rt. Rev. Douglas Edwin Theuner, VIII Bishop of New Hampshire. I have attended Episcopal services in Connecticut, Florida and Ohio – at another St. Barnabas. I am married to David Piacente who was a "3-pack," bringing Nicole and Sarah into my life. We have two children still living at home: Kianne and Dante. We have three grandchildren. We have a 30-year-old Eastern Box turtle and two dogs: a good old girl, Ginger, and Blaze, who is three months. I worked at Fred Meyer for seven years, where I was a Help Desk Analyst, a Trainer, as well as wearing several other hats.

Lewis “Judge” Needham

I was first the organist at St. Barnabas as a summer replacement while still in high school in 1962. My wife, Marilee, and I were married here in 1967. I have been full time here since 1982, but I’ve also been a millwright, welder, electrician, cabinet maker, mechanic, and cement finisher.

Aubin Spice

I’m the new guy! I’m not only new to the parish, I’m new to the Church – and to Portland, to boot. I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and then moved down to Chicago. After graduating from divinity school, I was baptized and confirmed as an adult. I recently moved out here with my girlfriend, Stephanie, who had grown up in Aloha. At St. Barnabas, you’ll find me organizing and leading educational programs and volunteer opportunities, both for kids and for adults.

I am a retired Reed College librarian, formerly in charge of the Instructional Media Center. I sing in the choir, play in the chime choir, sometimes play the piano or organ, serve on the vestry, serve on the History committee, served on the CRC committee, and am in charge of the Community dinners. I can't remember exactly how long I've been here, but came during LD's last year.

Anita Galloway
Christian Education

Anita Galloway

I am a cradle Episcopalian and have been a member of the St. Barnabas congregation for almost ten years. In that time I have had the pleasure of serving the congregation in a variety of positions: President of the Altar Guild, Director of the Sunday School, Junior Warden of the Vestry, treasurer of the Women of St. Barnabas and have served on two search committees. These experiences have been rewarding and given me the opportunity to know many aspects of my church community and work with many members of the congregation. It is an exciting time at St. Barnabas and I am looking forward to serving in capacities that will sustain our continued progress.

Cathie Price
Outreach

Cathie Price

I am a lifelong Episcopalian and have been a member at St. Barnabas for just over a year. Recently retired from 40 years in the Insurance industry, my husband Hayden and I enjoy travel, golf, fishing, spending time at Detroit Lake and spoiling our grandchildren. How we at St. Barnabas can provide outreach in our local community and beyond will be a focus of mine on the vestry.

Liz Martin
Parish Life

Liz Martin

I was born and raised here in Portland and have been going to St. Barnabas my whole life, with the exception of 4 years while away at college. Throughout my time at St. B's I have had my hands in several different things. They range from helping teach Sunday school, to being the co-secretary of the Women's group. I currently have the privilege of serving the congregation as a member of the vestry, through which I am involved with many parish life activities and functions. When I am not at a church function or at work, you might find me on the golf course or at home with a cat in my lap.
