Welcome to our New Rector


Join the Welcome Reception on Sunday, Dec 18, after the service.

The Vestry of St. Martin’s, in Lebanon, is pleased to announce the hiring of a settled part-time Rector

The Rev. Melodie Kimball, presently serving in Kilburn, York, which is located in the United Kingdom, will begin her duties on Sunday, December 18, 2016.

Rev. Melodie+ is originally from Seattle, WA and is very excited to return to the Pacific Northwest after being in England for 16 years.

Some of Rev. Melodie’s qualifications that were deemed important to St. Martin’s are:

  •  her education and experience in both the Chaplaincy and Leadership Management areas;
  •  her certification as a Grief Recovery Specialist;
  •  her experience working with all age groups;
  •  her overall attitude towards the care of both parishioners and herself

We give thanks for our Interim Rector and the many Supply Priests that helped us during our time of searching.  

St. Martin’s is anxiously looking forward to welcoming Rev. Melodie+ in December.

A service of Installation and Celebration of a New Ministry will be planned for Spring, 2017
