ST. DAVID’S ANGLICAN CHURCH TO RESUME SERVICES IN POULTNEY, VT

Bishop Brian R. Marsh has announced that St. David’s Anglican Parish in Poultney Vermont will once again resume regular weekly services beginning Sunday March 3rd at 10 AM. The parish will worship at 150 Main Street in Poultney.

“I am pleased to announce that this long standing parish will once again be a prominent institution in the Poultney area, “ said Bishop Marsh. “I am very pleased to also announce that the Rev. Mr. James Hogan will succeed Father Alexander Stringer who retired last year as pastor. Fr. Stringer was a dedicated and faithful servant of the church and served as shepherd for the people of his parish for its entire 38 year history.”

The Rev. Mr. Hogan has an associate’s degree from Nassau Community College in New York, Bachelor of Arts from the State University of New York at Albany, is a graduate of Trinity Ministerial Academy in Montville, NJ and has a Master of Divinity from the American Evangelical Christian University in Indianapolis, IN. He was accepted into Holy Orders in the Anglican Church in October of 2018.

Saint David was a Welsh bishop of Mynyw (now St. David’s) during the 6th century. He is the patron saint of Wales, recognized by several traditional denominations. St. David was a native of Wales and was responsible for the care of the Welsh Church as its Archbishop. The dates for his birth and death are debated. He was believed to have been born sometime between 462 and 520 and died on March 1st, ca. 554, 589 or 601 which is also celebrated as his feast day. He was canonized by the Church ca. 1120.

St. David’s is a member parish of the Anglican Church in America, part of the worldwide Traditional Anglican Communion with jurisdictions covering 44 countries. The Church holds Holy Scripture as authoritative and professes the historic creeds of Christendom, upholding the evangelical witness of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ. “We look forward to the growth of this important parish in the Vermont/Upstate New York Area and are pleased that this long standing Church community will continue to provide traditional worship, Word and Sacrament to the faithful,” concluded Bishop Marsh.
