The Very Rev. Tommy Dillon is Rector of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church and the Dean of the Baton Rouge Deanery in the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana. In Tommy’s world, there is no such thing as the “outcast and the stranger.” His work with newly-released prisoners, people suffering from mental illness and homelessness, and Hurricane Katrina & Ida survivors gave him fearless compassion for human needs in Louisiana before moving to the West Coast in 2006. While serving as a priest in San Francisco and the Seattle Area, LGBTQ+, parish food bank, and elder ministries flourished; Diocesan, parish, and neighborhood Disaster Preparedness groups formed; and connections in El Salvador were created through the Anglican Church of El Salvador & Cristosal. Tommy serves on the Boards of the Wild Goose Festival and the General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church. He is a frequent retreat leader, pilgrimage planner, and instructor of liturgy. Collaborating to create beautiful liturgies feeds his soul. Good food, good friends, and road trips with his Whippet pal Josh reveal the Holy in the everyday world.
