The Rev’d John H. Branson
John joined the parish to guide us during our time of transition. He comes from North Carolina after many years of ministry in the Episcopal Church. John is best known for supporting congregations as they re-claim and re-establish ministry as servant disciples of Jesus. He was the Rector of Christ & Holy Trinity in Westport for 21 years and has been very involved in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut. John and his wife Judyth have one daughter who resides in Westport, CT. Since retiring in 2012, John has served as the Interim Rector in several renowned parishes. A native of Concord, NH, John graduated from Berkeley Divinity School at Yale and was ordained in 1974. For the last decade, John has been especially interested in the reading of poetry as a way towards deepening the spiritual journey.
