The Rev. Margie Tuttle
I have been a priest for 20 years. I was ordained in the Diocese of Newark where I continue to be canonically resident. Most of my ministry has been as a Board- Certified healthcare chaplain in a variety of settings including acute care, hospice, retirement community, state psychiatric hospital, and an orthopedic surgery specialty hospital. While I retired from full time chaplaincy, I occasionally work per-diem as a chaplain.
Another aspect of ministry is serving as supply priest in the Diocese of Newark and New York where I am licensed to officiate. Currently, I serve as [art-time interim priest here in Pleasantville. I will complete a certificate program in Spiritual Direction at General Theological Seminary, and hope to offer spiritual direction in the future. St. John’s is in an exciting in-between place as you continue the variety of ministries of the parish. Likewise, we have begun something new in offering Children’s Chapel twice per month and an on-line Adult time of reflection. I join you in prayer for the calling of a new priest and seek to support you in the process
St. John’s is honored to have Warren as the organist for many years. He brings joyful music and in-depth knowledge of the Episcopal Church to the congregation each week.
