 In Featured, News, Updates

The people of the Diocese of Central New York celebrate the following clergy calls and transitions:

Clergy New to the Diocese

The Rev. Lisa Busby has been called to serve as rector of the River Parishes, Christ Church in Clayton and St. John’s Church in Cape Vincent, beginning July 1, 2018.

Busby returns to the Diocese of Central New York after serving as rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Scottsboro, Alabama in the Diocese of Alabama for the past two years. She has several years of experience working with families and individuals struggling with issues of mental health, poverty, discrimination and oppression. Enhanced with new experiences and a broader perspective, she brings her gifts of healing, love and reconciliation home to share with the River Parishes and the Diocese.

The Rev. Taylor Daynes has been called to serve as chaplain of the Episcopal Church at Cornell University beginning August 13, 2018.

Daynes comes to our diocese from Rochester, New York, where she served as deacon at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Before that, she lived in Baltimore, Maryland and worked as Community Engagement Coordinator at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, and as an instructor in the Creative Writing department at Johns Hopkins University. She’s studied Anglican Theology at the University of Toronto, holds a Master of Fine Arts in poetry from Johns Hopkins, an MA in religion from Yale, and a BA in English from Vanderbilt University. She’s also a published poet and former professional gardener. She looks forward to sharing these and other interests with ECC and the diocese, and to becoming a part of the life of the community.
