The Rev. Lisa Biersch Cole, Priest-in-Charge

Welcome to The Rev. Lisa Biersch Cole!

We have wonderful news for the future of Trinity Episcopal Church. Bishop Megan Traquir, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California, has appointed Rev. Lisa as Priest-in-Charge (PIC) for Trinity!

The Bishop believes The Rev. Lisa has the skills and knowledge to fit what Trinity needs going forward.

The Rev. Lisa (Fr. Lisa) is no stranger to the Trinity congregation. She was a Transitional Deacon at Trinity from 2014-2018 as she made her way through the discernment process and eventually became a priest in the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California. She had her ordination here at Trinity and many of her family members live in the Sonoma Valley.

The Rev. Lisa has held posts as a seminarian at Episcopal Church of the Incarnation, Santa Rosa, Episcopal Church of the Epiphany, Vacaville and Transfiguration Episcopal Church, San Mateo. More recently, Rev. Lisa served as vicar of SEA Episcopal Church, San Bruno. Fr. Lisa received her BA in communications from UC, Berkeley, and her MDiv at Church Divinity School of the Pacific in 2014.

The Rev. Lisa is poised to help our lay leaders bring robust energy to parish life in this post-pandemic world. The Rev. Lisa joined the congregation in October 2023 on our 170th year in the Sonoma Valley
