interns at diocesan office 90413

Reagan Grabbe, Alyse Viggiano and Jeremy Vogt, interns for 2013-2014, with Fr. Jason Emerson, current program director, and Canon Judi Yeats and Bishop Scott Barker, both former program directors.


Welcome to our new Resurrection House Interns for 2013-2014! Resurrection House is an urban Christian community for recent college graduates between the age of 21 and 30 interested in discerning a call to any form of ministry. Participants live together for nine months in a home located adjacent to a culturally diverse and direct-action outreach oriented Episcopal parish. Please keep this program in your prayers.


Here is an introduction from each of the interns:

Jeremy Vogt
I am originally from Minnesota and more recently from New York state. At Binghamton University I studied chemistry, though I feel called to ordained ministry and I hope that through the discernment process at Resurrection House I can enter Seminary. I am a self-proclaimed nerd, and love most board games. In my past church work I have served as an acolyte and lay minister. I am very passionate about preaching and working with youth in the church. I look forward to a great year!

Reagan Grabbe
I’m very excited to be a 2013-14 Resurrection House Intern. I’m from Bozeman, Montana, a college town nestled in the Rocky Mountains. I’m a 2012 graduate of Montana State University, with a B.S. in microbiology. Some of my hobbies include snowboarding, canoeing, crocheting, reading, photography, and playing with my Corgi, Maggie. I served in a myriad of ways at my home parish including as Godly Play Co-Director, Youth Director, Choir member, and Acolyte. I’ve been discerning a call to ordained ministry for some time, so when I found out about Resurrection House, it sounded like just the program for me. I’m looking forward to this year of discernment and growth, and happy I get to meet so many wonderful people in the process.

Alyse Viggiano
Greetings! I hail from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Interesting fact, I am a triplet. I attended college at John Carroll University, in Cleveland Ohio, and graduated with a degree in Marketing and minors in Philosophy and Entrepreneurship. Prior to college, I was raised at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Pittsburgh. I was active member of the youth group, which involved going on several mission trips to Charleston, South Carolina. Anyone looking for me, could find me serving as an acolyte regularly on Sundays. I was encouraged to consider the priesthood from mentors at St. Paul’s, but wasn’t ready to consider the call in high school. Now is the time to start discerning that call. My passion is to cultivate community through food, conversation, and spirituality, and I look forward to how Resurrection House will guide me to achieve that goal.
