As Anglicans, we recognize that the Mission of the Church Is the Mission of Christ:
Mother Terri has served as Priest-In-Charge at Holy Trinity since January of 2014. She lives in South Bend with her husband Tim and two daughters and divides her time between Holy Trinity and the Diocesan Offices, where she serves as Missioner for the Bishop. In her spare time, she coaches for her younger daughter’s middle school Science Olympiad team and putters around in her largely self-sufficient garden.

The Westside Ecumenical Clericus at Holy Trinity (WECHT)
Worship at Holy Trinity is further supported by a clericus, or group of clergy, from the surrounding area, including clergy serving at other Episcopal parishes and representing other Christian denominations.
The Rev. Stewart Clem
Father Stewart lives in South Bend with his wife, Molly, and their three daughters. He is studying theology at the University of Notre Dame and serves as assisting priest at St. Paul’s, Mishawaka. He enjoys playing guitar, performing silly magic tricks for his daughters, and (when the streets are not covered in snow) riding his bike.
Father Matthew is Rector of Saint Michael and All Angels in South Bend. He serves the diocese in a variety of capacities including being a trainer for the Diocesan Congregational Development Institute (DCDI). With a background in performing arts and public speaking, he teaches occasionally at IUSB and is a guest speaker in classes at Notre Dame. For fun in his free time, Fr Matthew has been seen by greater Michiana audiences at the Morris theater playing Herr Drosselmeyer in Southold Ballet’s Nutcracker.

The Very Rev. Brian Grantz
Fr. Brian wishes to remain mysterious. . .
Mother Susan has been the Rector of St. Paul’s Church in Mishawaka since 2008. During her tenure at St. Paul’s, she established the Order of Lay Preachers, a group of lay people licensed to preach, and she expanded the children’s ministries. Along with competent lay leaders at St. Paul’s, Mother Susan has worked to grow St. Paul’s outreach as well as the Adult Christian Formation Program. In the Diocese, Mtr. Susan holds many leadership positions, including Co-Dean of the Central Deanery, Diocesan Liturgist, member of the Commission on Ministry, and certified Trainer in the Diocesan Church Development Institute. She has also served on Diocesan Council in the past. Mother Susan is married to Father Thomas Haynes, priest-in-charge at St. Thomas’ Church in Plymouth and has two daughters, Sarah and Rebecca.

The Rev. James Lodwick
Father Jim divides his time between South Bend and his house in Guanajuato, Mexico. Though officially retired, he continues helping out in parish liturgies in both English and Spanish. He particularly enjoys gardening, language study, travel and hiking. He is a member (and currently president) of a group of mostly Quaker friends (Friends) who own an old hill-farm in Vermont, part of a land trust dedicated to environmental awareness and preservation. He enjoys getting away to a rustic cabin there when he can.
Dr. McKenny wishes to remain mysterious. . .
The Rev. Dr. Gerald McKenny (PCUSA)
The Rev. Canon, Dr. Hugh Page Jr.
Fr. Hugh is Professor of Theology and Africana Studies at Notre Dame, where he also serves as Vice President, Associate Provost, and Dean of the First Year of Studies. His particular research interests are in early Hebrew poetry; theories of myth; Africana biblical interpretation; poetry as medium for theological expression; the use of religious traditions and sacred texts in identity construction within the Black community; and the role of mysticism and esotericism in Anglican and Africana spiritualities. He is currently serving as Transition Priest at the Episcopal Church of St. John the Evangelist in Elkhart. Somehow he also still manages to find spare time to serve as lead singer for the Oblates of Blues.
Father John is recently retired after 31 years as Rector of St Thomas Church, Plymouth, IN, having moved to the diocese in 1982 after Bishop Sheridan facilitated the interview in Plymouth which led to a long and happy residence and ministry. John is actually a Canon of the Catedral del Buen Pastor in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, bestowed by Bishop Frade for mission work in the 90’s (Bishop Gray also named him Canon of the Diocese while he was in the midst of 25 years as Diocesan Secretary). The involvement with Honduras was foundational to the Hispanic Ministry developed at St Thomas in 2003.
