Deacon Wendy Dixon
Healing Team, Spiritual Direction
The Rev. Wendy Dixon is found most often praying with people, or meeting one-on-one with someone for spiritual direction. She also leads small groups and day retreats on any number of subjects. Trained through the Spiritual Directors Internship Initiative, Wendy has offered spiritual direction since 2005. She also leads retreats on contemplative and prophetic prayer using various art materials, journaling, and prayer walking outdoors. An important part of her ministry with us is helping to lead CTR’s Healing Prayer ministry.
Wendy grew up in St. Louis where she was steeped in the Anglican tradition, starting with attending an all-girls school which had Morning Prayer every day. After studying philosophy and theater at Smith College, then working in advertising in New York City, Wendy and her husband Dennis moved to Manchester-by-the-Sea with their baby daughter, the first of eventually three daughters in their family.
In her free time, Wendy enjoys hiking with her husband Dennis, reading, swimming, and hanging out with any daughter who is free to play with her.
