Reverend Nancy A. Frausto
Associate Rector, Luke’s Episcopal Church
The Reverend Nancy Frausto is the Associate Rector at Luke’s Episcopal Church in Long Beach, a founding member of the Diocese of Los Angeles Sanctuary Task Force and a Dreamer (DACA recipient). A powerful preacher, teacher and witness to the power of God’s liberating love, she is the Diocese of Los Angeles’ first Latina leader to have grown up in a Spanish speaking Episcopal Church and pursued ordination.
She is the recipient of the Episcopal Church Foundation and Beatitudes Society Fellowship. In 2014 she was named one of the Future 50 Interfaith Leaders in Los Angeles to watch by the Interreligious Council of Southern California. In May 2013, Nancy completed her Diploma in Theology from Bloy House and was the recipient of the Thomas Crammer Scholarship for Distinguished Achievement in Liturgical Scholarship. Shortly thereafter she received her Master of Divinity from the School of Theology at Claremont.
A sought-after speaker on issues of intersectionality, faith and racial reconciliation, Reverend Frausto’s call to social justice is a personal one. Growing up undocumented in the United States, she understands the importance of honoring one’s roots and making the changes necessary for future generations.
