Rev. Theresa Brion ’80 is the priest-in-charge at St. John’s Episcopal Church in West Point, Virginia. Brion was ordained in the Episcopal Church in 2010 and began her duties at West Point in November 2022. Her career path has taken many turns over the years.

Prior to her appointment at St. John’s, Brion was director of chaplaincy services at Goodwin House Bailey’s Crossroads, a senior community in Falls Church, Virginia.

Before that, she was with the Diocese of Maryland as bishops’ deputy for Western Maryland and oversaw its mutual ministry program and pastored two churches. Before seminary and chaplaincy training, she was a tax and legal editor with Thomson Corporation, which came after her years with several large law firms.

And it all started with her time in the classroom as a middle-school and high-school teacher. Brion’s Longwood degree is in social sciences with a pre-algebra certification.
