The Rev. Terry Gleeson
Office Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 9am-4pm, and other days/hours by appointment.
When asked where he comes from, Terry is never too sure what answer to offer: Vermont, New York, the United States, Australia and Sydney are all possibilities. He was born, raised and went to seminary in Sydney, where he was ordained to the Roman Catholic priesthood in 1980. After ten years in parochial and then diocesan ministry, and with a graduate degree in education, he came to New York City to join a religious order and worked in the field of developmental disabilities and mental illness.In New York, Terry began worshipping at St John's in the Village, where he was received into the Episcopal Church in 1998. It was there that he met his partner Dennis. After completing a Masters in Sacred Theology at the General Theological Seminary, concentrating in Sacred Scripture, he was received as an Episcopal priest in 2003 and served at Christ and St Stephen's on West 69th Street. From there he was called as Rector of St Stephen's on the Green, Middlebury, VT, in 2005. The topics of classes Terry has taught in recent years are probably the best indicators of his deepest interests: Scripture; Liturgy; Monastic art, architecture and spirituality; and anything Italian.
