I am pleased to announce that on Sunday, July 29, 2018, The Rev. Ellen Kohn-Perry will begin serving as our Assistant Rector.
Ellen was ordained to the priesthood in 2013. She served as Curate for Communications and Outreach at Christ Church in Short Hills before becoming Priest-in-Charge at Christ Church Budd Lake. In addition to her work as a priest, Ellen serves as President of the Board of Trustees of North Porch Women and Infants' Centers, a non-profit providing emergency baby supplies to children in need and on the Drew Theological School Alumni Executive Board.
Pror to her call to ministry, she worked for many years in the computer and software industry and as a professional ice skating instructor. She received her Master of Divinity degree from Drew Theological School and did her undergraduate studies at Hollins University and University of London. Ellen lives in Morristown with her family.
As you know, adding an Assistant Rector to our team has long been a desire and goal here at St. Paul’s. I am happy to have found a partner in ministry with the energy and passion to help us further our mission and ministry in the community! I hope you will join me in welcoming Ellen when she begins her service with us the last Sunday of July.
