CRCDS Faculty member Rev. Dr. Melanie Duguid-May was recently assigned to St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Bath, NY as Pastoral Leader. She was ordained a (transitional) deacon in The Episcopal Church on February 23, 2019 in her home parish, Trinity Episcopal Church, in Greece, NY.

We congratulate both women for their commitment and contributions to leadership in the academy and the church. May God continue to bless their ministries.
