The Rev’d Andrew Kryzak
Andrew joined the staff of Christ Church Greenwich in July 2018, following two years in the parish as seminarian and intern. He earned the Master of Divinity from Yale and a diploma in Anglican studies from Berkeley Divinity School and was ordained deacon and priest by the Bishop of Rhode Island.
Andrew serves as clergy liaison to outreach, music, Christian education, and new member ministry; he teaches confirmation class and the Sunday-evening Bible study; he organizes the liturgical life of the parish; and he is the chaplain to the choir. As curate, he shares in the cure of souls of the parish, which work he undertakes through preaching, teaching, pastoral guidance, and the administration of the sacraments of the church.
Raised in the Episcopal Church, Andrew Astwood Kryzak is in the eleventh generation of his family to worship in the New World according to the Book of Common Prayer. A native New Yorker, he grew up in Dutchess County, was prepared at Hotchkiss, and was educated at Duke and Columbia. Prior to divinity school, he worked for the New-York Historical Society and for the law firm of Davis, Polk & Wardwell.
Andrew’s academic and personal interests include Western history; sacred music; Classical and Gothic architecture; detective fiction; railroads; and the city of New York. He is an avid and longtime tennis player and sailor and enjoys reading, writing, and long walks. A selection of his preaching and writing may be found here.
Andrew is joined at Christ Church by his wife, Hannah Peckham, who has begun coursework for the PhD in American history at Notre Dame and divides her time between Greenwich and South Bend.
