It is a time of transition within our diocese, and we have new a clergy transition to announce.

The Rev. Paul Price has accepted a call as rector of St. Stephen’s, Oak Harbor.

From his introduction to St. Stephen’s:

How do I introduce myself? Good question. I was born and baptized in Berlin and am a cradle Anglican. My parents relocated to the high desert, Antelope Valley in California, where I spent most of my formative years. My home parish in Lancaster was St. Paul’s where Bp. Rusack confirmed me. I met my wife, Cheryl, in 1984 and we were married in 1985 by my godfather, Fr. Keith Landis. We have one child, Evan, who was born in Indianapolis. I have a BS in computer information science from Azusa Pacific University and my M.Div. from Virginia Theological Seminary where I graduated in 2004. I was ordained to the diaconate June of 2004 and as a priest December 19, 2004.

That tells the story of my accomplishments but not really who I am. I am a priest and a programmer. I am a godfather, a father, and a husband. I love astronomy and sci-fi/fantasy novels. Cheryl and I are ballroom dancers. I am a cancer survivor. I grew up knowing that God was an abundant part of my life. I am a child of God. And just as St. Stephen’s is coming through a transition, so am I. I think this is enough to get us started. I am looking forward to meeting and knowing a little something about each of you at St. Stephen’s. I know the journey we have together will be an exciting one.

Please join us in welcoming Rev. Price to the diocese and keep all congregations experiencing transition in your prayers.
