Rev. Carol D. Gadsden has been formally instituted as the 16th Rector of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Mamaroneck. The Rt. Rev. Andrew M. L. Dietsche, Episcopal Bishop of New York, presided over the service, which was attended by members of the parish community, family and friends of Mother Gadsden, as well as visiting clergy from the Episcopal dioceses of New York, Connecticut and Newark.

“I am profoundly happy for St. Thomas,” said Bishop Dietsche in his welcoming remarks “I have absolute confidence in Carol.  I believe that she is a person of courage and faith, stability and foresight and I know that this congregation is a place with the same virtues.”  Reminding the congregation that they are “engaged in mutual ministry” with their new rector, the Rev. Mr. Butler said that Mother Gadsden will “value all of your gifts” and “equip you as disciples of Jesus for ministry.”

Mother Gadsden arrived at St. Thomas in September, 2014 after serving as rector of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Sparta, New Jersey.  She has also served congregations in the dioceses of Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.  A native of Syracuse, New York, Gadsden is married to Linda March, and has two adult daughters, Hilary Nieukirk and Courtney Mandell.
