The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit Welcomes You.
The red door on an Episcopal Church is traditionally a sign of welcome. Come through the door, and you'll discover that we are a multi-generational, family-centered church. Our congregation worships together, supports each other in times of trouble, celebrates together, and does God’s work in the world. We are open, welcoming, and inclusive. We invite you to join us.
Welcome Reverend Dr. Ronnie Stout-Kopp
On Sunday, September 14, the Reverend Dr. Ronnie Stout-Kopp joins Holy Spirit as a long-term supply priest, until a new permanent priest is chosen. Mother Ronnie has been an Episcopal priest for more than a decade, serving in a variety of parishes throughout the Diocese of Newark. She's also an accomplished musician, having served as a music minister, organist, and choirmaster prior to her ordination. Teaching and preaching are two of her passions (in addition to horses!)
In May 2010, Mother Ronnie earned a Doctor of Arts and Letters in Irish and Celtic Studies from Drew University in Madison, NJ. Drawing on her Celtic studies, Mother Ronnie says, "I am an 'anam cara.' This is a Celtic terms that means 'soul friend.' Being an anam cara means that I am committed to long-term relationships with my parishioners and that I walk with them and support them through times of joy and sorrow. I am committed to being there, nurturing and feeding them in body, mind, heart and soul and acting as the 'midwife' to their ongoing spiritual birth."
Please join us on Sundays as we get to know Mother Ronnie.
