Holy Week 2014
We are enormously privileged and blessed to have a very distinguished guest preacher coming to spend the week with us – the Revd Dr Stuart Hoke.
Born in Memphis and raised across the river in Blytheville, the Rev. Dr. Stuart Hoke is a priest of the Diocese of New York who recently retired as Staff Chaplain at Trinity Church Wall Street in New York City and Missioner to St. Paul’s Chapel at Ground Zero. Ordained in 1972, he spent the greater part of his ministry serving congregations in Arkansas and Texas. In 1996, he completed the Master of Sacred Theology degree at New York’s General Theological Seminary, and was awarded the Doctor of Theology degree in the spring of 2000.
Stuart is a frequent retreat and quiet day conductor throughout the Episcopal Church. He also is an Adjunct Professor at General Seminary in Manhattan, where he has pioneered a course on the Church’s role in the treatment of alcoholism and addictive illness. In the very recent past, Stuart served as interim Chaplain and Dean of Community Life at General Seminary. Stuart now resides in Fearrington Village, North Carolina.
