Verse of the Day

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. (Galatians 5:16-17, 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.
