Patricia Riden

Acolyte Master

Born and raised in Ardmore, Oklahoma, Patricia came to the Episcopal Church in 1967. Ten years later, she became the Acolyte Master at St. John’s. Patricia has been mentoring young people for more than 40 years. It is her ministry.

“I started with the acolytes to give the program some much needed structure. I have stayed with it because I came to see keeping our young people involved in the liturgy of worship is an integral part of deepening their faith and teaching them the joy of service.”

A retired French and Spanish teacher, Patricia’s hobbies include knitting, baking, traveling, and reading. She revels in time spent with her family and friends.
