It is our great pleasure to announce that
The Rev. Rebecca Barnes
celebrated her first Eucharist with us as our new Vicar
Sunday, September 29th at 10:30 AM.
Mother Rebecca was ordained in 2012, and comes to us from Saint Ignatius
of Antioch Church on the Upper West side, where she served as Curate and
Assistant Rector. The search committee and vestry had extensive
conversations with her during the search process, and were very
impressed with her abilities and her compatibility with Holy Trinity
Inwood. Among the many highlights are her training at Manhattan School
of Music and her ongoing studies towards an S.T.M. (Master of Sacred
Theology) at General Theological Seminary. There's much more we could
mention, but perhaps it's best simply to let us all get to know each
other as she becomes part of the HTC community.
Thank you all for your patience during the search process. A special
thanks to all those who applied and interviewed for the position and the
diocese for their on-going assistance from the beginning. And one final
'Thank You' to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen.
We are all excited to start the next chapter of Holy Trinity Inwood.
And welcome Mother Rebecca!
