Join us on March 3 to Welcome Rev. Roy Cole!
Our new Interim Rector has joined the Parish! The Reverend Roy Cole began work at the Parish offices this week, and his first Sunday at worship will be March 3. Please join us and help welcome him.
The Reverend Roy Cole is a transplant from the West Coast. Born in San Diego, California into a Navy family, moving regularly and making new friends was just part of growing up. He entered ministry when he was 28 and served various parishes on the West Coast. In 2002 Roy made his way to New York and, after completing a Masters in Sacred Theology at the General Seminary in Chelsea, and his dissertation for a Doctor of Ministry degree from San Francisco Theological Seminary, he became the Priest-in-Charge of two parishes in Yonkers, New York. In the fall of 2008, Roy accepted a Call to serve as Rector of St. John’s, Staten Island where he was also appointed Canon Missioner. After ten years of in ministry there has just accepted the call to be Interim Rector at the Church of the Epiphany.
