Rector, Staff & Vestry


The Reverend Dorota Wright-Pruski


Originally from Poland and raised in the great state of Iowa, Rev. Dorota moved to Wisconsin in 2002 where she earned a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science from Marquette University. After discerning a call to priesthood, she earned her Masters of Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary while also serving Christ Church in Georgetown as a seminarian and deacon. She was ordained in 2013 and moved back to Wisconsin to begin her priesthood as the Associate Rector of St. Andrew’s in Madison.

While a community organizer in Milwaukee, Rev. Dorota fell in love with the Episcopal Church and the way it beautifully integrated ancient spiritual practices with 21st century opportunities and challenges. She carries that passion forward and believes in ministries that inspire, move, teach and share the community, fostering strong and sustainable lay leadership, and finding new opportunities for creativity and joy in ministry.

Rev. Dorota is an avid runner, as is her husband Colin. She also enjoys baking bread, biking, swimming, recycling, and dessert.

Vestry Members

For those new to the Episcopal Church, the Vestry is “the legal representative of the parish with regard to all matters pertaining to its corporate property.” This group helps articulate the congregation’s vision and support the church’s mission through selection of the rector and management of resources and finances. Vestry representatives are elected from the church’s membership and generally serve a three-year term. Learn more about the role of a vestry on the Episcopal Church’s site.
