From the Interim Rector - January 15
I am very pleased to announce that after a long search and a number of interviews with various candidates God has directed us to our next Associate Rector. The Reverend Elise Hanley, Associate Rector of Trinity on the Green in New Haven, Connecticut has agreed to accept a Call to the Church of the Epiphany. You will see Mother Elise’s biography below, but let me say that in my meetings with her, and as she had an opportunity to meet with one of our Wardens and a vestry member, I believe her many gifts and skills will greatly benefit our shared life, ministry and mission. She is friendly, energetic, and passionate about the Gospel and issues of justice, inclusion, and serving those who are most vulnerable among us. You can start to get to know Mother Elise by visiting her website at www.eliseexegetes.com and reading some of her recent sermons.
Elise will begin at Epiphany on Sunday, February 9th. Soon to follow will be information about a reception to welcome her so as to give everyone a chance to get acquainted. Please keep her and her husband in your prayers as they make the move to New York. I know they are both very excited about Elise’s call to ministry here and she is very anxious to jump into this vibrant, forward-moving and faith-filled parish. I’m confident she will be a blessing to us all.
