2024 Vestry Slate

On Sunday, April 21 a unanimous vote passed the following Vestry Slate. Meet your new Vestry members . . .

Kirsten Breckinridge

Kirsten Breckinridge has served Trinity Church in a variety of ways over the past ten years. As a consultant, she facilitated the church's strategic planning process in 2019, including the drafting of the Trinity's mission statement. She has also worked with church staff to assess and improve operations, policies and procedures. In addition to serving as Secretary of the Vestry for the past four years, Kirsten also has volunteered on the Board of Trinity Loaves and Fishes, served as a doorperson for Godly Play, and writes regularly for the daily meditation ministry.

In her spare time, Kirsten is a part-time management consultant working primarily with nonprofits and foundations. She has also authored a novel (available at Trinity Treasures) and is working on her second book. Kirsten married into a Trinity family - her father-in-law, Lex, received his call to the ministry at Trinity in the 1990s. She and her husband, Alex, have been active members for over 13 years. You can find Kirsten, Alex, and their children, Caroline and Alexander, rushing to a front pew at 10:31 on most Sunday mornings.

Marshall Hevron

Marshall Hevron was born and raised in New Orleans and is a lifelong parishioner of Trinity Church. He is a graduate of St. John’s College in Annapolis and Tulane University Law School. He is a partner at the Adams and Reese law firm where his practice focuses on property and education law. Prior to law school, Marshall served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and completed a deployment to Iraq in 2003. In the community he is a past president of the Preservation Resource Center, past commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8973 and currently serves on the board of the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Garden District Association. He is married to Sarah Landrum Hevron and they have a ten month old son named Stanley who will start at Les Enfants in the fall. As a member of the vestry, Marshall would like to focus on ways to welcome more young families into the Trinity community.

Michael Kearney

Mike is a lifelong parishioner of Trinity Church. Through the years, he has served as an acolyte, usher, and reader. He previously served on the Trinity School Board as Vice President. Mike, and his wife, Susu, have chaired the Capital Campaign. He has also participated in the 12 Steps is for Everyone program. Mike says, "I feel very strongly about Trinity's outreach ministries and that they should not only be retained, but expanded. Obviously, this can only happen with continuous fund-raising efforts." He also feels very strongly about the church / school relationship, and would like to do everything he can to further enhance it.

Mike graduated from de la Salle High School, attended LSU, and graduated from Tulane, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. He served two years of active duty in the United States Navy. Mike is married to Susu (if you don’t know her, you haven’t been to Trinity). They have three children, Michael Jr., David & Niquette. They are also proud Grandparents of Leah, Laine and Patrick Kearney. Mike founded the Kearney Companies, Inc., a logistics company, and currently serves as Chairman Emeritus.

Holt Kolb

I grew up in Edenton, NC as a lifelong Episcopalian. I met my husband, Gordon Kolb, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and I moved to New Orleans when we got married almost 21 years ago. We started to attend Trinity after our marriage, and our girls were born 5 years later and started to attend Trinity School in Pre-Kindergarten.

I am an accountant by trade, but I have chosen to be a stay-at-home mom for the past 14 years. I was formerly employed by PricewaterhouseCoopers in Washington, DC and then in New Orleans. After that, I worked in the Children's Hospital accounting department for 3 years.

I enjoy volunteering at Trinity Episcopal School where my 14 year old girl twins (Clyde and Ellie) are now finishing their 10th year in the 8th grade, and my 10 year old boy twins (Hood and Ford) are finishing 4th grade. I also serve on the Capital Campaign committee, and have served on the VML committee. I like to help with Trinity Loaves and Fishes, write some daily meditations, and serve as a lector in Sunday services when possible. Our family is thankful for the 6:00pm Sunday service as we spend most Sunday mornings at the boys' soccer games. I hope to help where needed on the Vestry as well as help with the projects of the Capital Campaign as they come to fruition.
