The Ven. Margaret Dyer-Chamberlain

The Ven. Margaret Dyer-Chamberlain was born and raised in The Episcopal Church, and has participated in either Episcopal or United Church of Christ congregations all of her life. She graduated from Smith College in 1980, from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in 1983, from the School for Deacons in 2013, and was ordained as a deacon in June 2013. Margaret is employed full-time at Stanford University, and is married to Page Chamberlain. They have two adult children (Sam age 30 and Forrest age 29), and live with a quirky and loving rescue dog named Zilly.

Margaret’s present ministries include community gardening work — as a founding member of The Free Farm until it’s closing; currently working in the St. Mark’s, St. Aidan’s, Little Red Hen, and Diamond Heights median gardens; Habitat for Humanity — each year in February joining with her former church home, the Church of Christ at Dartmouth College, in a week of service in the Mississippi Delta; and donating baby blankets on a monthly basis to the Labor and Delivery unit at San Francisco General.
