The ministry of Saint Peter’s is the ministry of all God’s people, lay and ordained. Our clergy and professional staff work to enable and empower parish members to do their ministries both within the parish, and more importantly, in the world outside of the church’s walls.

We are also part of the larger fellowships of the Diocese of Ohio and of the Episcopal Church, USA, which is a province of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Check out the links to learn about our “family” of 80 million people!

Our Clergy

Rev. Sally Goodall

The Rev. Sally Goodall was born in Bristol, England, and grew up in the Church of England. She has lived in Chicago, Houston, Jamaica and The Netherlands. She has two adult children and one granddaughter.  
Since moving to Ohio, Rev. Sally earned a Master’s degree in Speech Pathology and worked in acute care hospitals, rehab, and outpatient settings and home health.  She also set up and managed speech therapy and occupational therapy programs in schools across Ohio for children with special needs.  
Rev. Sally began formation as an Oblate with a Episcopal Carmelite Community in Maryland in 2005, making first vows in 2009 and life Vows in 2013.
In the Diocese of Ohio, Rev. Sally served as Vice-Chair and Chair of Summit Mission Area Council and on the Commission on Ministry. 
She was ordained to the priesthood in 2019 and since then served St. John’s in Cuyahoga Falls as Interim during their transition period.
When the Rector of St. Peter’s retired, she was called to serve as Interim Rector and is excited to have the opportunity to get to know this wonderful congregation and be part of their spiritual journey during the transition process.
St. Peter’s welcomes Rev. Sally as the Interim Rector. We have embarked on a search for a new rector, and have hired a consultant to assist with this process. We are excited and look forward  to the search as we move ahead.

Lay Leadership

The heart and soul of Saint Peter’s consists of the baptized members of our Lakewood, Ohio parish. God uses our time, our talents, and our treasure to make the ministries of St. Peter’s happen. Every kind and size of gift and talent is critical to making the Reign of Christ visible in this faith community.

Our parish leadership consists of 12 parishioners who work together on our VESTRY.  These parishioners are elected by the general membership to oversee the workings and the “business” of the parish. They also work alongside the clergy and professional staff to discern God’s vision for our life together, and to provide spiritual leadership for the congregation and the wider Greater Cleveland area community.
