Canon Andrew Petiprin Begins Work in the Diocese of Tennessee

The Rev. Canon Andrew Petiprin will begin work at Diocesan House on Monday, June 12th, as Canon to the Ordinary assisting our present Canon to the Ordinary, the Rev. Pamela Snare, until her retirement in early 2018.  Canon Petiprin and his family recently moved from Orlando, FL where he was rector of St. Mary of the Angels Church.  In the Diocese of Central Florida, he served on the Standing Committee and as chair of the Clergy Events Committee. He was a British Marshall Scholar at Magdalen College, Oxford and trained for ordination at Yale Divinity School and Berkeley Divinity School at Yale.

Bishop Bauerschmidt, in welcoming Canon Petiprin, said “During this (search) process I have sought a priest with a primary commitment to parish ministry, who is willing to stretch for the sake of important diocesan work. I have also sought a leader from the next generation who can help to lead us in this next part of our diocesan life. I am grateful to Fr. Andrew for answering this call.”

A diocesan-wide opportunity to meet and greet Canon Petiprin is scheduled for June 29th, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM at Diocesan House.
