New Episcopal Church Rector finds “manna” in Chestnut Hill in Pennsylvania

Posted by Kendall Harmon

This Sunday afternoon in Chestnut Hill, loss will be officially transformed into opportunity, resignation into delight.

The Rev. Jarrett Kerbel will be installed as the new rector of the Episcopal Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, the venerable parish that sits next to the green fields of the Philadelphia Cricket Club.

St. Martin’s vestry, the governing board of the church, invited Kerbel to be the church’s new minister, replacing the Rev. Robert Tate, who retired last year after 14 years at the church.

“With Jarrett we get the whole package," said Barbara Dundon, who headed St. Martin's search committee. "He's good in every one of the key areas we were looking for: preaching, liturgy, outreach, stewardship.”

Read it all.
