Fionnuala "Finn" Fox-Morrow  is a Project Manager for an infrastructure construction company and her main focus is on MDOT Ancillary Construction Contracts. She says: My favorite projects are on the Light Rail, and specifically Howard Street as my family used to own an antique store on Antique Row. I was born at Union Memorial, my grandparents were married at Corpus Christi, and I wanted to worship in the city because my life is in the city. For a long time I had been struggling with where to call home spiritually since I was not raised in any particular denomination, and through the loving guidance of the Wells family, I gave Memorial a try! I feel called to serve because this congregation and the Episcopal church have filled me with such joy, and I want to share that joy with everyone that feels out of place and lost as I felt entering those doors for the first time. Finn is mom to Millie and Alistair.

Fred Gorman  has worked at St. Mary’s Outreach Center as a Case Manager for the past 4 years. He shares: We help the Elders of Baltimore age in place by providing case management for government programs, such as SNAP, Medical Assistance, MEAP, etc. I have always been called to serve, whether it is as simple as acknowledging a stranger or explaining the inner workings of the Maryland DSS to an Elder in a way they understand. I look forward to being of service to the church we call home. I have been married to my best friend, Sue Gorman for the past 18+ years. We have two wonderful daughters, Katherine and Rebecca. I cannot imagine watching them grow up without the influence of our family around Memorial. The Gorman Family came to Memorial at the invitation of Jennifer Pelton and the Memorial Players production of ‘Oliver!’, became Thesbians and then Episcopalians.

Kaitlin “Kaite” N. Vaught, J.D. , currently serves as a Judicial Law Clerk for a Family Magistrate in Baltimore City Circuit court. Upon passage of the Maryland State Bar Exam she plans on practicing international family law in the Baltimore-D.C. metro area. Moving here from Kentucky, Kaite was looking for a church home and had yet to find a place where she felt welcomed. Until she found Memorial. She joined Memorial through the Memorial Players after being cast in Romulus in the fall of 2016. During the course of the performance she found a church that welcomed her with open arms. Memorial has since become her family away from family. Since then she has been in one other fall drama and has worked on the spring musical as stage manager. She will be joining the choir after the bar exam is over at the end of February and is excited to serve her church family in any capacity she is able. Kaite lives in Bolton Hill with her ginger cat fur baby, Hamilton.

Alex Scott  (Dr. Nathan A. Scott III) has been a member of Memorial Episcopal Church since 1999. He grew up in Chicago. His father was a professor at the Univ. of Chicago, who later became an Episcopal priest and a Canon Theologian of St. James Cathedral. His mother was an economist, and was the first African American woman to be named a vice-president of the Federal Reserve Bank in Chicago. After she and her husband retired as the first tenured African American professors at the Univ. of Virginia, she received an honorary degree from Virginia Theological Seminary for her service to the Episcopal Church. Alex and Carol moved to Baltimore in 1986, with their two sons, Kade and Douglas (who was baptized at Memorial). Alex is a primary care physician (internal medicine), who has worked for Johns Hopkins Health Systems (1986-2006) and for Jai Medical Systems (2006 to present). He has averaged 3500-4000 patient visits a year for the last 30 years. His recreational interests include running, writing a philosophy blog, and attending jazz and chamber music concerts.In 2017, Alex helped bring the University of Maryland Art Against Violence exhibit to Memorial. He also helped organize a program on the theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer that featured a film and panel discussion. In 2018, he helped start a college scholarship fund for Baltimore high school students called the Memorial Episcopal Church Young Scholar Award. He's also a member of the Book Club. Alex has always found Memorial Church to be a welcoming place for people of all cultural backgrounds, and a place that encourages freedom of self-expression. He attends the Faith at Eight service on Sundays, and likes to read poetry during the reflection period. Alex sees himself as an evangelical Episcopalian. Evangelical in the sense that there's no contradiction between being evangelical (in the true sense of the word) and being concerned with social justice. Evangelical in the sense of being passionate about Jesus Christ. Evangelical in the sense of loving god "with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind" (Matt. 22:37). As a vestry member, Alex will hope to spread the good news of Memorial, to participate more fully in its ministries, and to help remove all barriers--social, racial, and generational--to becoming evangelical within the Episcopal Church.
