Canon Richard Norman

The Rev. Canon Richard Hudson Norman, Jr. has accepted the call to become rector of Grace Episcopal Church in Monroe.

Father Norman grew up in Alexandria, LA, and was confirmed at St. Timothy's, Alexandria. A graduate of LSU, he attended General Theological Seminary in New York City and was ordained a deacon by Bishop Robert J. Hargrove at St. Mark's Cathedral in 1992 and priest at St. Timothy's, Alexandria in 1993. He has served several churches in the United States and Europe and most recently as senior canon at St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Father Norman is married to Adrienne McKee (a New Zealander who works in finance). The Normans have two children: Hudson, 11, and Oliva, 9,

Father Norman's ministry will begin at Grace on the first day of Advent, December 1, 2013. He and his family are excited about returning to Louisiana.

Please pray for Canon Norman as he and his family begin their transition to Monroe.
