Nancy Greig Shearer Ludwig was born in Waterbury, CT; attended and graduated
from St Margaret’s Diocesan School for Girls; received a Bachelor of Music degree
in Organ Performance from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia; a Master
of Music in Organ Performance from Yale School of Music; and has lived most of
her adult life as a church musician. She married Robert Ludwig in 1977, and they
have two sons, James and Samuel.
It is fair to say the Episcopal Church has been her home since birth. She began to
sense a call to the priesthood in 1991, and has followed that call encountering the
usual bumps-in-the-road handed to all of us. On August 15, 2022 – the Feast of St
Mary the Virgin – with the support of an enormous cloud of witnesses, Bishop
Thomas J. Brown, tenth bishop in the Diocese of Maine, called upon the Holy
Spirit to make her a deacon in the Church and on the Last Sunday in Epiphany, February 19, 2023, Bishop Brown ordained her as a priest. Praise God!
