2017 Guest Preachers at St. Ann’s Church

The Rev. Andrew D’Angio White will preach at the annual Fourth of July worship service to be held at 8 AM on Tuesday July 4th.

Andrew became the rector at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Kennebunk in December of last year. He and his wife Sara, also an Episcopal priest, have two young children, Maggie and Charlie. The D’Angio Whites met in a campus ministry program while Andrew was an undergraduate at Haverford College and Sara was at near-by Bryn Mawr College. Andrew graduated from Virginia Theological Seminary in 2011 and Sara in 2012.

Andrew, Sara and the children came to Kennebunk from Newark, NY (near Rochester) where they served as Rector and Associate Priest for the Northeast Partners in Episcopal Ministry (NPEM), a cluster of three congregations (plus a summer chapel). Andrew and Sara also served for a year as lay missionaries on a Navajo reservation at the Good Shepherd Mission in Arizona following Sara’s graduation from Bryn Mawr.

Andrew’s ministry and leadership at St. David’s, where a number of St. Ann’s members also worship and belong, are creating opportunities for our two congregations to forge a closer relationship and to explore partnership possibilities.

Jon is a renowned presidential historian, contributing writer to The New York Times Book Review, contributing editor at TIME, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author.

He is a very active Episcopalian and church leader, and has served on the vestries of St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue in NYC and of Trinity Church Wall Street in NYC as well as the Board of Regents of The University of the South. Jon and his wife, Keith, now live in Nashville with their three children.
