Our Staff

Music Director - Ms. Sandra L. MolyneuxMOLYNEUX Sandy
Sandy was born in west Texas and raised in the Presbyterian Church. At 15, she was pulled out  of Sunday school to play the organ for the day’s service. She continued as organist until she graduated high school. While studying at Texas Christian University on a music scholarship, Sandy visited St. Stephen Presbyterian Church where her heart and soul were touched by the formal, dignified, and reverent service. She spent the next 25 years studying organ and serving as Assistant Choirmaster/Organist at St. Stephen before moving to Illinois. Sandy became the organist at St. Mary’s in 1995, and took on the additional role of Choir Director in 1998.

Parish Administrator - Ms. Amy NoeNOE Amy
Amy and her family have been members of St. Mary’s since moving to Crystal Lake in 1998. Coming from different religious backgrounds (Baptist and Roman Catholic), she and her husband, Rick, needed to find a church that made them both feel comfortable. From the first day they attended an Episcopal service in Wisconsin, and continuing through various moves since then, they have felt at home in the Episcopal Church. Amy has been the central presence in our parish office since 2002, and considers it a privilege to work with and for her St. Mary’s family.
