New Rector of Saint George’s Round Church

December 12, 2017 at 4:30 pm

The Wardens and Parochial Committee are pleased to announce that our new Rector will be Fr. Nick Hatt. Nick will be well known to some of you. For those who have not yet met him, Fr. Hatt is currently Rector at the Church of the Holy Spirit, in Lakelands, N.S. He has also served as the Dean of Students at the University of King’s College for 10 years and is currently Priest Associate in the College Chapel.

Fr. Hatt was born and raised in Chester, N.S. and in St. Stephen’s Anglican Church. He loves the liturgy and lectionary of the BCP and our musical tradition. Fr. Hatt was ordained Deacon on the Feast of St. Simon and St. Jude, in 2015, and Priested at All Saints Cathedral in 2016, on the Feast of St. John the Baptist.

Fr. Hatt will join us as Rector on Ash Wednesday. He will be with us for all of Lent and Eastertide. For this year only, after Ascension Day, to have a well-earned rest after concluding his University duties, Fr. Hatt will take a longer-than-usual leave of three months. There will be a priest covering in his absence and he will be back with us at the end of August.

Please pray for the people of the Church of the Holy Spirit as they love Fr.Hatt, and our joy is their sorrow.

Please join us in thanksgiving for the ministry of Fr. Jim Purchase, for his long service as our Priest in Charge (three times over), and for leading us for the next 2 ½ months.
