About Canon Logue
The Rev. Canon Frank Logue is the Canon to the Ordinary for the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia.
Before joining the diocesan staff July 1, 2010, he served as founding rector of King of Peace Episcopal Church in Kingsland, Georgia. Frank began the church, together with his wife, Victoria, and their daughter, Griffin, in June of 2000.
Born in Montgomery, Alabama, where he lived for 6 years, Frank grew up in Marietta, Georgia, having moved there in 1969. A 1984 graduate of Georgia Southern University, Frank worked as a newspaper photographer for two small daily newspapers in Georgia—the Warner Robins Daily Sun and the Rome News-Tribune. He married Victoria Steele in 1985, and the two spent two months in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal on their honeymoon. The couple hiked the entire 2,150-mile Appalachian Trail in a single six-month long hike in 1988. Three years later, Frank and Victoria went full-time as freelance writer-photographers, writing books and magazine articles. Their seven books include Touring the Backroads of North and South Georgia and The Appalachian Trail Hiker. Frank also wrote as a Contributing Editor for Shutterbug magazine.
In 1995, Frank responded to a deeply felt, too long ignored call to the ministry. A discernment process within the Episcopal Church confirmed that call to full-time ministry. Frank entered the Virginia Theological Seminary in the fall of 1997. While there, Frank worked as a seminarian at two area churches, including assisting with the creation of a new church—Church of the Spirit in Alexandria, Virginia. He also took part in summer internships with the Anglican Church in Tanzania and St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, a large mental hospital in Washington, D.C.
In May of 2000, Frank was graduated with honors from seminary and he and Victoria bought a home in Camden County and moved down with their then nine-year-old daughter, Griffin, to start King of Peace. The Logues continue to enjoy the outdoors and travel. Victoria most recently served as the editor of Georgia’s Coastal Illustrated, and is currently writing freelance. She is a retreat leader and a certified labyrinth facilitator. Griffin is a sophomore at Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia where she majors in creative writing and minors in theatre.
All three of the Logues are actively involved in the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia. Griffin has served on the Diocesan Youth Commission and been involved in many diocesan youth programs. Victoria served three years on Diocesan Council. Frank served on the Commission on Ministry for eight years where he was the Examining Chaplain for first Church History and later Scripture. That committee continues to be part of his work in the diocesan office. He has also served on numerous retreat weekend teams including New Beginnings, Happening and Cursillo. Frank and Victoria put on a successful series of three spirituality retreats in 2007-2008 called Journey to Wholeness.
In Kingsland, Frank wrote a religion column for the Tribune and Georgian. He was also an adjunct faculty member at Valdosta State University’s Kings Bay Center where he taught Fundamentals of Philosophy, Logic and Argumentation, Religion and Culture, and World Religions.
The couple have also traveled extensively in the United States and abroad including Africa, Europe, Israel, and the Four Corners area of the American Southwest. Frank, Victoria and Griffin spent 11 days traveling along the Nile in Egypt during March of 2004. The photo at right shows the Logues with Victoria’s Mom, Laura (at far right) riding camels (they did not just pose on them) with the Great Pyramids at Giza in the background.
Some stories and photos from their summer of 2007 trip are online here: Italy and France.
Some of Frank’s artistic work has been featured in exhibits by Episcopal Church and the Visual Arts, including the exhibit he curated together with his daughter Griffin in late 2005 called Venite Adoremus. His work was also in the previous exhibits: Out of Darkness into Light, an exhibit illustrating the collects for Advent through Epiphany, and one another on Art & Faith. You may visit an online exhibit of some of Frank’s black and white photos of Israel.
