Welcome to The Rev. Daniel Handschy
St. David’s would like to extend a warm welcome to The Rev. Daniel Handschy PhD who will become our new priest in charge.
Rev. Handschy will be moving with his wife to our area in July, and will start at St. David’s August 11th. He is retiring from his parish of 27 years in Missouri to be closer to family in CNY, a blessing for us. Dan is a scholar of Historical Theology, bringing a deep understanding of spirituality, science and the bible together. He has worked with his parish to start many community initiatives such as a community garden and senior programs.
We look forward to our journey together, embracing Jesus and growing in spirit as a community at St. David’s and beyond.
The wardens and vestry would also like to thank the parishioners for their patience, faith and prayers over the last few months, as well as the leadership of The CNY Episcopal Diocese. The leadership of the diocese walked with us hand in hand on our journey to Rev. Handschy, especially Rev. Canon Scholfield-Broadbent and Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe. The wardens also would like to shout out to the vestry and all those involved in this decision, for their thoughts, prayers and hard work.
Welcome to St. David’s Rev. Handschy, and thank you Lord.
