ABOUT HOLY COMFORTER EPISCOPAL CHURCH
The Rev. Canon Jerry Smith was called to be the Priest-in-Charge of Holy Comforter in May 2016 and in the fall of that year he was appointed as incumbent of the parish.
The Rev. Beth Pessah joined us as associate rector in July 2018.
The Rev. Jeanie Beyer is our Deacon, and Archdeacon of the Diocese of Florida
These seven parish leaders are responsible for assisting the rector in leading the parish to a stronger Christian ministry and a strengthening of our faith. The vestry is responsible for the financial affairs of the parish and, in general, acts as a board of directors. The members serve three year staggered terms.
We have a dedicated group of full-time and part-time paid staff members, as well as office volunteers.
Our beautiful church is located at 2015 Fleischmann Road. Within the church building include the fully-equipped Crittenden Parish Hall, office, nursery, classroom, and lounge. Adjacent to the church is the architecturally compatible school campus for Holy Comforter Episcopal School.
