NORTH KINGSTOWN – The Rev. Virginia Heistand, a single mom of three, sits in her sun-drenched, book-filled study in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
Beaming, she declares, “Everything in my world has changed in the last three months and it’s wonderful.”
In that timeframe, she has become the venerable Wickford church’s first female full-time minister – although other women have served in interim roles – and, after a career in clergy housing, she has purchased her first home, in rural Hope Valley.
