Alexandra Dyer, a Roman Catholic woman priest, lectors at a July liturgy at St. Praxedis Roman Catholic Church in New York City. In her former day job as the head of an NYC non-profit arts organization, Rev. Alexandra uncovered malfeasance, prompting the embezzler to hire a young man to throw industrial drain cleaner in her face as she walked to her car. Both criminals are now serving time on Rikers Island, and Alexandra has been busy healing. She recounts how, along that process, she had a spiritual experience which solidified her already strong faith.
