    St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and the Association of Anglican Musicians (AAM) are pleased to announce the appointment of Ezechiel Daos as the recipient of the 2024–2025 AAM Gerre Hancock Internship. The Gerre Hancock Internship program was established to create full-time mentoring opportunities for extraordinary young church musicians who demonstrate a strong interest in the music and worship of The Episcopal Church. This annual internship is jointly funded by AAM and the host institution and offers the intern ten months of practical experience through intense and intentionally formative work as part of an outstanding music program. 

    Daos said he is honored to serve as the Gerre Hancock Intern at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta, Georgia. "I am thankful to both the Association of Anglican Musicians and St. Luke’s for this incredible opportunity. It is a bit daunting, but inspiring and humbling, to serve an internship named after such an important person within The Episcopal Church," he said.  "This internship comes at a wonderful time in my life. Last October, I was officially received into the Episcopal Church. I am incredibly thankful to many, but particularly to St. Barnabas in Denton, to Mother Lillian Kamau for her pastoral guidance, and to the congregation at St. B’s, where my journey into The Episcopal Church began. I also hope that being the first person of color to hold this internship will inspire many of our marginalized siblings in The Episcopal Church to be able to discern a vocation to serve. I look forward to serving St. Luke’s in the coming months."
