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 architectural and engineering professional services, Virginia is thrilled to join the staff of Saint Clement as Parish Administrator. She has experience as both an operations and business development manager. A “cradle Episcopalian,” Virginia has early memories of children’s choir and spent teenage years overseas, where she served as an acolyte and pianist with the Church of England: St. Peter and St. David’s Parish in Ramstein, Germany. Virginia graduated from Saint Mary's College of Maryland with a Bachelor's in International Languages and Music, then earned a Master's Degree in International and Area Studies at Yale University prior to moving to D.C. Besides days at St. Clement, she can be found in Alexandria with her husband Julian and baby son Aaron.
