Verse of the Day

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. (John 15:16, ESV)

Our Rector

The Reverend Richard McKeon, Jr.

Richard McKeon has been called to be our Rector. Richard is a graduate of Middlebury College and Yale Divinity School; he grew up in Westchester County and is a life long Episcopalian.  For the past  22 years, he has served at Zion Episcopal Church in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. His strengths match our needs, as he has demonstrated excellent pastoral care at Zion, and has worked extensively with children and young adult programs.  The Diocese has cited his parish as one of the healthiest parishes in stewardship and outreach programs. He has also been Vicar to Bishop Roskam for the past 15 years, and has built strong Diocesan working relationships.

On a personal note, he loves gardening, reading, architecture, and collecting ocean liner memorabilia.  Richard, along with his partner Tim Lewis and their two border collies, Rupert and Tucker, will reside at the Church Rectory.

No announcement can convey the joy that the Vestry had in unanimously choosing Richard to be our  spiritual leader.
