St. Gabriel's Welcomes New Interim Vicar, The Rev. Nancy Packard
The Rev. Nancy Packard will be St. Gabriel’s new Interim Vicar, starting January 19. She will be with us for approximately four months.
We are grateful for Rev. Nancy’s presence and look forward to a productive four months.
The Rev. Nancy Packard came to the Diocese of Bethlehem from New Hampshire in 2004. She is the former rector of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Reading where she served from 2004 to 2012.
Since 2012 she has served in two different parishes as interim priest in the Diocese of Bethlehem before coming to St. Gabriel’s – St. Anne’s in Trexlertown and St. Alban’s in Sinking Spring. She also served for a 3-month maternity leave at St. Thomas’ Church in Morgantown.
For recreation, Rev. Nancy enjoys reading, playing board games (especially Scrabble), bowling, playing pickleball and getting together with friends for pinochle.
Rev. Nancy is currently a resident of New Hampshire (her home state) where she loves spending time with her family.
