Since July 2019, The Reverend Doreen Rice has been the priest-in-charge at the Episcopal Church of the Covenant, Junction's City's oldest church. The parish has been serving Junction City and Ft. Riley for 160 years.
Prior to being ordained to the priesthood, Mother Doreen had a 25-year career as a fundraiser for educational institutions, with a focus on annual and estate giving, and capital campaigns. During her career, she raised more than $125 million.
Along with her parish, Mother Doreen is committed to helping the people of Junction City and Geary County. In addition to serving on the United Way board, she is also a board member for W.H.E.E.L.S. of Hope, our community's mobile food pantry.
