Our Clergy & People
Deacon Ann Goraczko
The Reverend Ann Reeder Goraczko, MDiv, MA, MSEd, joined All Angels in June, 2012, and serves as deacon at both the English and Spanish services. Her bridge ministry in the Church is hospital chaplaincy, and she is the Staff Relief Chaplain at Memorial Regional and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Florida.
Within the Diocese of Southeast Florida, she is a member of the Diocesan School Board, the Social Justice Commission, the Nehemiah Steering Committee and is co-chair of the Recovery Ministries Board. She is retired from Florida International University where she spent much of her professional career as a social science researcher, most recently as Associate Director of the Institute for Public Opinion Research.
She is currently using those skills to evaluate several Diocesan-supported programs. She is married to Tony, and has two grown children, Anna, an artist living in Chicago, and Anthony, married to Carol, with two daughters, Madelyn Annalise and Alyssa Gabrielle, living in Pembroke Pines, FL. .
If she could pick only one passage from the Bible that has inspired her it would be Romans 12:2: "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern the will of God— what is good and acceptable and perfect."
Deacon Ann spends much of her spare time reading and she keeps a running file of spiritual wisdom which she calls “Faith Strengtheners.” She also enjoys crocheting prayer shawls as part of her ministry.
Seminarian Natalie Blasco
Natalie has been a member of All Angels since 2006. She is the youngest of three sisters born in San Juan, Puerto Rico to the Rev. Raul and Carmen Blasco. She has been married to Antonio Buehler since 1997. In her previous professional life, she was a Medical Transcriber and, over the years, worked at several area hospitals including, the University of Miami, Baptist Hospital of Miami and Memorial Healthcare System. After having been married a few years, she decided to return to college and finally finished her undergraduate studies in 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Religious Studies and a certificate in Judaic Studies.
When she arrived at All Angels, she had already been contemplating the possibility of attending seminary but was unsure and uncomfortable with the idea. She was worried about putting her family through difficulties as the family of a priest, knowing from experience how difficult that can be. But, with guidance and counseling from Mother Keedy, in 2008, I was able to finally take the step to begin a discernment process and accept my calling. Natalie is currently attending Berkley Divinity School at Yale University. She hopes to be ordained as an Episcopal priest in 2015.
