Rachel Twigg

Priest, Retreat Facilitator, Spiritual Director

Rachel Twigg has never had a job title that easily fit on a business card.

She’s a pilgrim who loves to explore new places and new ideas.

She’s a priest, spiritual director, and retreat guide, as well as a teacher, preacher, and writer who is equally comfortable discussing spiritual disciplines, how to make the perfect cookie, or why she stills dreams of a Buffy spinoff featuring Giles and Anya.

She’s a settler living on Treaty One Territory who is learning to listen and to act in meaningful ways to bring about reconciliation with her indigenous hosts.

She thinks nuns and monks are some of the coolest folks around and she loves hanging out in monasteries, including St Benedict’s Monastery were she is also an oblate.


She serves the congregation of saint benedict’s table which was featured in an article on vibrant mainline congregations in The Christian Century.


When she is not working, she can often be found drinking coffee, walking her dog, or doing both at the same time.
