The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that the Rev. John Denaro has been appointed the new Priest-in-Charge for the Episcopal Church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity, located at Clinton and Montague streets. The Rev. Nell Archer, who has been serving as Acting Priest-in-Charge, will continue as Assistant Priest-in-Charge, thereby providing the church with two full time clergy for the first time in many years.
The Eagle quotes the Rt. Rev. Lawrence Provenzano, Bishop of the Diocese of Long Island (which includes Brooklyn) as saying Rev. Denaro is “uniquely qualified” for the mission the Bishop envisions, that of developing new ministries in Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn, especially an “active weekday ministry” Downtown.
