Clergy and Staff
Rev. Robin Razzino
The Rev. Robin Razzino came to the Church of St. Clement in November 2016 after serving for eight years at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Bethesda, Maryland; a short time at St. Thomas, McLean; and a previous career working in the fields of international human rights, development, and peacebuilding. She spent one year living in South Africa, and her work took her to over twenty other countries throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa. She is firmly committed to community building and reconciliation within the church and beyond.
Robin graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Journalism, and George Mason University with a Master’s degree in Conflict Analysis and Resolution. She received her Master of Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary in 2008. She is married to Dr. Brian Razzino, a child psychologist, and together they have two young children: Zoe and Anna, who have attended the St. Clement preschool.
Robin is passionate about helping people to discover, strengthen, understand and be awed by their relationship with a fiercely loving God - and to live into the promise of abundant life for which Jesus Christ came into our world.
Coming from the world of business development, Virginia is thrilled to be apart of Saint Clement as Parish Administrator. In addition to managing mega-proposals for engineering and infrastructure projects, she has experience both in operations and business development. A “cradle Episcopalian,” Virginia grew up around Episcopalian and Anglican traditions, and involved herself in everything from choir to hand-bells and organ. Virginia graduated from Saint Mary's College of Maryland with Bachelor's Degrees in International Languages and Music, then earned a Master's Degree in International and Area Studies at Yale University prior to moving to Northern Virginia. Besides days at St. Clement, she can be found in Alexandria with her husband, adorable son, and three highly opinionated parrots.
Anne Tyler serves as the Music Director of the Saint Clement Choir! When she isn’t at St. Clement, Anne is the director of the Prep Program for Children’s Chorus of Washington (since 2005), and an accompanist for Advanced Bel Canto.
From 1997 to 2022, Anne was a music educator at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School in Washington, DC. In addition to her role as Department Chair and work with the Middle School General Music Classroom, she conducted the Middle School Chorus, directed the Middle School theatre productions and various hand-bell ensembles. Anne also was the director of the 9 O’Clock Choirs at Christ Episcopal Church in Alexandria, Virginia for 11 years, from 1992 to 2003.
She has served as a professional accompanist for Maryland All-State, ACDA Eastern and National divisions, and Fairfax (VA) Choral Society’s youth choruses. She was a recipient of the Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund (JFMF) Teacher Program and traveled to various prefectures to study the Japanese education system. Anne was the 2010-2011 O’Neil/Carew Fellow at St. Patrick’s School, co-presenting a workshop on “Taizé Worship in the Middle and Secondary Schools” at the National Association of Episcopal Schools. In 2015, she was awarded the Love of Teaching certificate from her school. Anne holds a Masters of Music in piano performance from The Catholic University. Saint Clement is thrilled that Anne is present at Saint Clement, sharing her multiple talents with parishioners and staff!
