Christine Miller‐Marcin, a Postulant for Holy Orders in the Diaconate of the Episcopal Church, founded Heart and Soul Ministry in 2012. The ministry’s first volunteers came from St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and St. Jude The Apostle Catholic Church in Lewes. Her volunteer base has grown to over eighty!
On November 16, 2017, Chris presented, as part of her Diaconate, a stimulating workshop on Capital Punishment. See photos here.
Chris co-Chairs ECW [Episcopal Church Women] with Tracy Mulveny, Mitzi Kratt and Joyce Gleason. ECW contributes support to the needy in our community.
She is currently mentoring St. Peter's 2017 first-year EFM [Education for Ministry] class and plans to continue through all four years.
"The Little Cupboard" is one of Chris' ministry projects with Heart and Soul. Built by one of our parishioners, the cupboard is located at the church fence on Second Street near Parish Hall and is a welcome assistance to those in need. It is kept filled with food items, toiletries, scarves, gloves and socks--and even Bibles!
In addition to her other ministries, Chris is also leading St. Peter's newly-formed Daughters of The King group, a ministry devoted to prayer, service and evangelism. Several DOK members went to our diocesan convention in Ocean City MD to pray for election issues in a prayer room provided for them.
Chris' latest ventures are Beekeeping and Gardening, just started in Spring 2018. Proceeds of both projects will benefit the needy, as well as being educational tools for children.

"The Bread of Life," St. Peter's first chapter of The Order of the Daughters of the King, is led by Chris and is our newest ministry.
The Service of Admissions was held at Sunday service by Rev. Jeffrey Ross on December 17, 2017, for the first members of our chapter: Chris Miller-Marcin, Kay Wooten-Schechinger, Maggie Kilroy, Jeanne Rogers and Mary Thomson.
Chris began studies in September 2017 with those interested in learning about the Order. It is a spiritual ministry of prayer and service.
Who are the Daughters of the King?
The Daughters of the King is an order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the historic episcopate but not in communion with it. Today our membership includes women in Episcopal, Lutheran, Roman Catholic and Anglican churches.
