About us

Episcopal Mission
of Franklin NH

The Episcopal Mission of Franklin NH is a new church plant of the Episcopal Church in New Hampshire. Located at and drawing on the legacy and best gifts of historic St. Jude's Church, we are a group of disciples discerning together how the Episcopal Church might best serve the people of Franklin today. We gather together for worship for Compline on Zoom on Tuesdays at 5pm and in the Sanctuary and on Zoom for Eucharist or Noonday Prayer on Thursdays at 12pm.

Core Values

All are welcome at God’s Table

We value inclusivity, creating a community that is both accepting and accessible

Being fed by Faithful Conversation

We value listening to others' stories and sharing our own, learning together that we might grow in love, honesty, strength, compassion and joy

To do God’s work of Love in the World

We value serving our neighbors and changing the Franklin community for the better

I am a priest of the Episcopal Church who is passionate about helping people of all ages claim their own discipleship, gathering together for worship, and proclaiming the Good News of God’s presence in our midst through caring for one another and in outreach in the community. When I’m not talking with folks in the neighborhood, you can find me in my vegetable garden or hiking with my husband Zac and our dog Murphy.

Lay Assistant

Following a successful career as a business leader and organization builder in the propane industry, the call to serve the Lord became stronger and I decided to get out of the way and follow God’s call. My skills are in organization building, communication and public relations. Married to Audrey for 35 years we live in Loudon with Max our 10 year old dog and worship at Grace East Concord. We have lived in NH since 2011 and love the state. In addition to family and faith, I am passionate about football!
