Br. Dave Hedges – our new Rector!

With great joy, we announce that the Rev. David Hedges, the current Rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Sycamore, IL, has accepted the call from our Bishop Kirk Smith, as requested by our Vestry, to be the next Rector of our spiritual home, St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church. On 14 August, Father Dave will begin his first Sunday at St. Michael’s by officiating the Morning Prayer at 9:00 AM and celebrating the sung Solemn High Mass at 9:30 AM. His wife, Carly Flagg, and their daughter, Zoe, will arrive later, in time for Zoe to begin class at our parish day school on 18 August.

 

Fr. Dave received his Bachelor of Arts in History from San Francisco State University in 2002 and his Master of Divinity from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in 2005. He was ordained Deacon at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, in 2005, and priested at St. James Cathedral, Chicago, six months later. He was Curate at St. Mary’s, Crystal Lake, IL (2005-2007), then Rector of St. Peter’s (2007-present). He is passionate about the liturgy, sacramental pastoral care, and about the work of inviting into the church those who are not yet its members. He is excited by St. Michael’s because of its balanced blend of Catholic liturgy and social action, as well as the presence of the parochial school community.

 

Fr. Dave is a member of the Brotherhood of Saint Gregory, a religious community of men in the Episcopal Church, whose members, lay and ordained, follow a common rule of life and serve the church on parochial, diocesan, and national levels. Their Rule includes prayer, service, stewardship, and individual renewal among other matters. Brothers may be married, partnered, or single, and aim to follow St. Gregory the Great as “servants of the servants of God” whether in church or in society. Dave was thrilled to discover the sign at the back of St. Michael’s saying Soli Deo Gloria, the very motto of the Brotherhood! Shortly before coming to St. Michael’s, Dave will become a Novice Brother, and will be properly addressed as Brother Dave for short.

 

Dave’s wife, Carly, will be serving the Tucson community as an American Sign Language Interpreter. She has an MA in ASL-English Interpretation from Gallaudet University, and a BA in Early Childhood Education from Smith College, and taught ASL-English Interpretation at the university level for sixteen years. Other graduate work includes study in Counseling and Developmental Psychology. Carly enjoys yoga, running, gardening, and cooking. She shares with Dave a common interest in letter-writing and postal ephemera. Dave enjoys bowling, photography, and long road trips.

 

Their daughter Zoe (12) will be enrolled at St. Michael’s School. She has been a Girl Scout for six years and has earned her Bronze Award for efforts in increasing community literacy. She also enjoys horseback riding, drawing, and theatre.

 

As we joyfully welcome our new Rector and his family, we must wholeheartedly acknowledge our congregations’ enthusiastic participation in our self-study, our Nominating Committee’s wisdom and perseverance, our Vestry’s prayerful discernment, our Interim Rector Fr. Richard Mallory’s loving care, Canon Russ Smith’s consultation, the Rev. Canon Megan Traquair’s guidance, and our Bishop’s blessing throughout the challenging process. Alleluia!

 

Respectfully yours,

Healing Mass - Wednesdays at

Con gran alegría, anunciamos que el Reverendo David Hedges, el actual rector de Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church en Sycamore, IL, ha aceptado la llamada de nuestro Obispo Kirk Smith, según lo solicitado por nuestra Junta Parroquial, para ser el próximo rector de nuestra hogar espiritual, Saint MIchael’s and All Angels Episcopal Church. El 14 de agosto, el Padre Dave comenzará su primer domingo en San Michael’s para oficiar la oración de la mañana a las 9:00 am, y la celebración de la misa solemne cantada a las 9:30 AM. Su esposa, Carly Flagg, y su hija, Zoe, llegarán más tarde, para que Zoe comience sus clases de nuestra escuela parroquial el 18 de agosto.

Padre David recibió su Licenciatura en Historia de San Francisco State University in 2002 y su Maestría en Divinidad del Seabury-West Theological Seminary en 2005. Fue ordenado diácono en la Grace Cathedral en San Francisco en 2005, y padre en la Saint James Cathedral en Chicago, seis meses más tarde. Era cura en Saint Mary’s en Crystal Lake, IL (2005-2007), luego rector de Saint Peter’s (2007-presente). Es muy apasionado sobre la liturgia, la sacramental pastoral, y sobre el trabajo de invitar a la iglesia los que todavía no son sus miembros. Se emociona estar en San Michael’s por su mezcla equilibrada de la liturgia católica y la acción social, tanto como la presencia de la comunidad de la escuela parroquial.

Padre Dave es miembro de la Saint Gregory’s Brotherhood, una comunidad religiosa de los hombres en la Iglesia Episcopal, cuyos miembros, laicos y ordenados, siguen una norma común de la vida y sirven a la iglesia al nivel parroquial, diocesano y nacional. Su regla incluye la oración, el servicio, la administración, y la renovación individual y otros temas. Los hermanos pueden ser casados, acompañados, y solteros, y su objetivo es seguir a San Gregorio el Grande como “siervos de los siervos de Dios”, ya sea en la iglesia o en la sociedad. Se emocionó mucho al descubrir el letrero atrás de Saint Michael’s que dice Soli Deo Gloria, que es el lema de la Hermandad! Poco antes de llegar a San Miguel, Dave se convertirá en un hermano Novato, y será llamado Hermano David, para abreviar.

La esposa de Dave, Carly, servirá a la comunidad de Tucson como intérprete de lenguaje de señas americano. (ASL). Tiene su maestría de artes en la Interpretación ASL-Inglés de la University of Gallaudet, su licenciatura de artes en Educación Infantil en el Smith College, y enseñó la Interpretación ASL-Inglés al nivel universitario durante dieciséis años. Sus estudios post-graduados incluyen el estudio de Orientación y Psicología del Desarrollo. Carly disfruta de yoga, correr, jardinería y cocinar. Ella y Dave comparten un interés común en la escritura de cartas y material efímero postal. David disfruta del boliche, la fotografía y viajes largos por carretera.

Su hija Zoe (12) será inscrito en la Saint Michael’s School. Ella ha sido una Girl Scout durante seis años y ha ganado la Medalla de Bronce para los esfuerzos en aumentar el alfabetismo en su comunidad. También le gusta montar a caballo, dibujar y el teatro.

Mientras gozosamente damos la bienvenida a nuestro nuevo Rector y su familia, debemos reconocer sin reservas la participación increíble de nuestras congregaciones en nuestro auto-estudio, la sabiduría de nuestro Comité de Nominaciones y perseverancia, la oración y discernimiento de nuestra Junta Parroquial, el cuidado amoroso de nuestro rector interino Padre Richard Mallory, la consulta de Canon Russ Smith, la orientación de la Reverenda Canon Megan de Traquair, y la bendición de nuestro Obispo por todo este proceso complicado. ¡Aleluya!

Atentamente,

Howard Creswell, Segundo Vigilante, y Ke Chiang (Juan) Hsieh, Primer Vigilante
