The Very Rev. Martin Luther Agnew, Jr., “M.L.,” joined the chaplaincy at St. Ann's in 1993 at the invitation of the Rt. Rev. John Maury Allin, former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church.  M.L. was ordained deacon and priest by Bishop Allin in the Diocese of Mississippi.  Serving the Episcopal Church in Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana and Texas, he brings a "southern flavor" to our New England ministry.  M.L. received his undergraduate degree from The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, majoring in history.  After a brief stint playing with the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers, M.L. attended the Episcopal Seminary in Virginia, graduating with a Masters in Divinity in 1967.  Family, church and athletics form a "kind of trinity" for the retired dean of St. Mark's Cathedral, Shreveport, Louisiana.  Golf clubs, tennis racquets, and an occasional football provide sermon illustrations for M.L.'s sermons.  We invite you to come "Catch one sometime."

The Rev. Dr. Peter Cheney, formerly the Director of the National Association of Episcopal Schools in New York City, joins St. Ann’s in mid-August and closes the church at the end of September.  Peter was greatly inspired by his ancestor, 19th century abolitionist Frederick W. Gunn whose spirit of inclusiveness, open inquiry and concern for the freedom and welfare of others shaped his own sense of vocation as a servant leader.  Throughout his career, he has been active in education and leadership development with students and faculty whether as a chaplain in Pennsylvania or Tucson, AZ or as Chaplain, Counselor and Director of Admissions at St. Paul’s School in Concord, NH.  A graduate of Transylvania University and Virginia Theological Seminary, Cheney has had extensive training and experience as a clinical counselor, with particular emphasis on the adolescent journey, and as a consultant in mediation and conflict resolution.
