St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church is an open and inclusive Christian community, made up of disciples of Jesus who are seeking light and sharing love. Our church is blessed to be a beautiful chapel amidst the cathedral of God’s creation. Calling Lake Tahoe our home means that we daily discover the image of God in the world around us—the lake, the mountains, the pine trees, and all the life that resides in this corner of God’s kingdom.
The Rev. Sarah A. Dunn has served as Rector of St. Patrick's since September of 2017.
Although originally from the Deep South and educated in New England—Mount Holyoke College & Yale Divinity School—, she quickly fell in love with Tahoe, especially experiencing God in the power and beauty of the created world. Her ministry focus is to remind each and every individual that you are a beloved child of God with wonderful gifts and talents that assist in the building of God's kingdom here on earth. Her passions include skiing way too fast, researching Celtic Christianity, hiking with her dog, Merlin, and spending time with those she loves.
We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being.
