Tom & Jerry 6.25.19 Ordination

We are pleased to announce the selection of our longtime stalwart Jerry Fitzgerald, right, as our new Daily Office Chaplain and the Rev. Tom Roy, now a priest, as Associate Chaplain. They succeed the Rev. Gwen Hetler, our chaplain for the past eight years, who retired on 1 January. Jerry, a layman, is a full-time hospital chaplain in Regina, Saskatchewan, and Fr. Tom, a retired police officer, is a pastoral associate in the Episcopal Church of Minnesota. They will serve as pastoral consultants to the Vicar, and any member may approach them with questions or concerns, as one or both are usually present at our daily webcasts. (Other trained, experienced chaplains are also invited to join our Chaplains’ Corps, whom Jerry will represent on our board of directors.) We couldn’t replace Mother Gwen with just one man, so we picked two. Above: at the reception after Tom’s ordination to the diaconate in June 2019.
