Our thanks go out to the Reverend Barbara Thrall who shepherded the people of Saint Paul's with grace, compassion and kindness for ten years. After a 30 year career of ministry, she began a well-earned retirement July 1, 2017.
Rev. Barbara was ordained in 1986 in the Diocese of NY, after attending The General Theological Seminary in NY City. She served as an assistant in a congregation there from 1986 until 1990, when she moved with her family to northern New Hampshire to pastor a church there. She and her husband, Ed, moved to Holyoke so that she could become rector of St. Paul’s in May of 2007.
