St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Seattle calls a new Rector

Join us in welcoming the Reverend Robert F. Beicke to St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Seattle!

Mark your calendars for his first Sunday with us: June 24, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. in the main church.

The Reverend Robert F. Beicke was raised in and around Buffalo, NY and received degrees from Valparaiso University, Christ Seminary – Seminex, and the University of Texas.

Father Robert comes to St. Stephen’s from St. George’s Episcopal Church and Center, a unique ministry with and for the homeless in Southeast Florida, where he was priest-in-charge since 2014. During his many years in the priesthood, Father Robert served in churches in Tennessee, Texas, and Florida—including time as a missioner developing a new congregation, in an inner-city congregation, and in a 3,000-member downtown regional parish. He also served as a Chaplain with the St. Louis Metro Police Department, and for 12 years in the United States Army Chaplain Corps (active duty and reserve) including a post in Washington at Fort Lewis.

Father Robert and his wife, Patricia Farley, were married in February 2009. When he’s not working on something church-related, Father Robert enjoys exploring local events, dancing, introducing his wife to his favorite science-fiction shows, and cooking without recipes. So far, they have survived all of his food experiments!
