IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT At the Bryn Athyn Church’'s semi-annual meeting on April 26, Bryn Athyn Church members affirmed the nomination of Rev. Eric H. Carswell as the next Pastor of the Bryn Athyn Church. Board of Trustees voting resulted in the re-election of Sean Connolly, Wendy Cooper and Barbara Doering, and we are happy to welcome Dr. David Fuller to the Board. The evening included an entertaining and inspiring presentation about what students have to say about their New Church education, presented by Headmaster Dr. Reid Pritchett.
After taking lots of counsel, we have decided to cancel our meeting on May 10 and instead hold lots of focus groups to get feedback on the strategic plan. Read more...

Rev. Jay Barry has been called as the new Pastor of the Glenview Society. Jay is currently Bryn Athyn Cathedral Director and teaches 7th grade religion. Eric Carswell and I are setting the process in motion to find a suitable replacement for him. I'’m sure that you will join me in thinking that we will really miss Jay and Barbara in Bryn Athyn. I have very much appreciated the gifts that he brings to his work and the projects that he has been involved in at the Cathedral. Congratulations Jay and best wishes for your time in Glenview! ~ Rev. Jeremy Simons, Pastor, Bryn Athyn Church
