Lang Lowery

The Rev. Cannon Lang Lowrey is interim rector of St. Teresa's Episcopal Church, Acworth. "What an exciting future is ahead of this parish," Lowery said of his assignment. "Worship attendance is rising, the Day School is growing exponentially and this fall the parish will have many exciting offerings!" Lowery, who also serves as canon for Christian enterprise for the Diocese of Atlanta where he focuses his work on special projects and new initiatives, is assisted at St. Teresa's by the Rev. Terri Brice. Before coming to St. Teresa's Lowrey and Brice served as interims at St. Anne's Episcopal Church, Atlanta. Lowery became an Episcopal priest following a successful career in business. After seminary, Lowery devoted several years to planting a new church in the Atlanta area and became founding rector of St. Benedict's Episcopal Church and School in Smyrna. Later Lowrey served three years as interim president and then president of The General Theological Seminary in New York, bringing the seminary through a period of broad-based restructuring and the creation of new revenue streams.

What Members Say Add your voice

  • St. Teresa's in a church founded on outreach. Our goal is to live into the prayer of our patron saint, Teresa of Avila. "Christ has no body but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours, Yours are the eyes with which he looks Compassion on this world, Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good, Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, Yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours, Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassion on this world. Christ has no body now on earth but yours."
