We love working together…

“I love working at our office because we have some of the most exceptional people that I have worked with as a clergy person in my 31 years. We have a laugh together, we support each other in hard times, and we’re able to take constructive feedback and grow with each other because we’re sharing in the Gospel.”

The Rev. Canon Richard Norman, Canon to the Ordinary and Chief of Staff
