I was born in Worcester, Massachusetts on June 5, 1949, and grew up in the Congregational Church (Church of the Pilgrim fathers/mothers) and was active in the Youth Group, the Worcester Council of Churches, and the church choir.

I attended the University of Hartford, Bloomfield, Connecticut and graduated Cum Laude in 1971 with a degree in History and Social Studies, and a minor in Education.  It was during this time that I began going to the Episcopal Church and was confirmed at Trinity Church, Hartford, CT. in 1970.  The original plan was to attend seminary and get ordained, but that was not to be.

In 1979, I moved to Ft. Worth/Dallas, Texas, as an employee of American Airlines.  (They moved their corporate headquarters from New York to D/FW).  At that time I began attending St. Vincent’s Church.  I became a Lay Reader and became increasingly involved with the church and felt that I had a “calling” for something more.

I pursued this calling and was led to pursue the Permanent Diaconate.  After about 8 years of study and mentoring (interrupted by a couple of years working and living in Paris, France),  I was ordained by the Right Reverend Clarence C. Pope on 24 August, 1993, the Feast of St. Bartholomew.

I have been at St. Vincent’s for most of my ordained life (interrupted by a 4 year call at St. Mark’s in Arlington, TX).  I have been active at St. Vincent’s helping with the Acolytes and Lay Readers, Missionary groups, Daughters of the King and other groups and committees as requested by the Dean.  I have also been involved with the Commission for Ministry for the Diaconate.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a Deacon and hope, that if it is God’s will, to continue.
