The Rt. Rev. Mary D. Glasspool came to the Diocese of New York as Assistant Bishop in April, 2016. Previously she had been Suffragan Bishop of Los Angeles (elected December 2009, consecrated May 2010). She was born on Staten Island, raised in Goshen, NY, where her father, Douglas Murray Glasspool, served as rector of St. James’ Church until his death in 1989, and graduated Bachelor of Arts Magna cum Laude from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA in 1976; earned her Master of Divinity from Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, MA in 1981; was ordained a deacon in June 1981 by Bishop Paul Moore, Jr. of New York; and in March 1982 was ordained a priest by Bishop Lyman Ogilby of Pennsylvania. From 1981 to 1984, she served as assistant to the rector, and later interim priest-in-charge, of St. Paul’s Church, Philadelphia, moving from there to be rector of St. Luke’s and St. Margaret’s Church, Boston, where she remained until 1992. She then moved to the Diocese of Maryland, first as rector of St. Margaret’s Church in Annapolis (1992-2001) and then, until her election in 2009 as suffragan bishop of Los Angeles, as Canon to the Bishops in the diocese.
We are St. George’s church, a community united by Christ in a life of generous thanksgiving, hospitality and service. Our members are recent newcomers and lifelong Episcopalians, single, married, divorced, and partnered people, newborns and elders, native Newburghers and new neighbors. We gather together from around the block and from around the Hudson Valley.
We believe in a radical inclusion of all into our spiritual home, we encourage questions, and we invite you to find a place where you belong among us. There are no outcasts from our community–not for reasons of ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic means, background, or status of any kind.
