Mr. and Mrs. Arthur E. Green of Potomac are pleased to announce the Aug. 24, 2003 engagement of their daughter Jessica Raizel to Stephen Adam Myrow, son of Dr. Ralph and Sandra Myrow of Woodcliff Lake, N.J.

The future bride earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology at Towson State University and a Master of Business Administration, concentrating in Marketing, from the Johns Hopkins University. Ms. Green is an Account Executive with Dan Kaufman Graphics, Inc., a boutique graphic design/advertising specialty firm, in Washington, D.C.

The future groom earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Political Science and Russian Studies from Colgate University, a Doctor of Laws degree from the Georgetown University Law Center and a Master of Arts degree in International Affairs from the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University, where he currently serves as a Lecturer.

A November 2004 wedding is planned in Washington, D.C. where the couple resides.

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Bethesda welcomed its new rector, the Rev. Dr. Stephanie J. Nagley, as she officiated at her first services in the parish on Sept. 7.

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Nagley received B.S., M.S. and Ph.D degrees in nursing and worked as both a nurse and professor of nursing before being called to the ordained ministry. A graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary in 1993, she served most recently as associate rector at St. Mark’s, Capitol Hill, in Washington, D.C. Of her move to St. Luke’s, Nagley said, “I was drawn to this parish because of its position in the community and its strong commitment to caring for those in need.”

Nagley is the fourth rector in the church’s 49-year history. The St. Luke’s parish welcomed her with a coffee hour on Sept. 7 and a parish picnic on Sept. 14. The Episcopal Bishop of Washington, the Right Reverend John Bryson Chane will conduct a formal celebration of her new ministry at 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 26 at St. Luke’s church.
