This is an area to describe the details of the event. Or you could have any information in here really, it just doesn't matter all that much. But the real test of an area like this is how much text it can actually hold. I mean, surely there must be limits. Right? Well if there are we sould probably display a Link Style.

The Rev. Dennis Reid
Associate Rector
 

Dennis grew up nearby in Lansdale, PA and has always considered the Diocese of Pennsylvania to be his home. He studied history and religion at Wake Forest University, graduating in 2008. After serving at All  Hallows, Wyncote as Director of Youth Ministries, Dennis began his education at Virginia Theological Seminary and graduated in 2014. Following seminary, Dennis served as deacon and priest at Trinity Church in Manassas, VA.

One of the great joys of Dennis' time in Virginia was meeting his then-wife-to-be, Megan, a fellow seminarian. In June 2014, Megan was ordained to the priesthood, Dennis was ordained to the transitional diaconate and the couple were married - all in the same week! Megan now serves as priest-in-charge at St. Thomas Church in Morgantown, PA.

Dennis is grateful to join the staff at St. David's and looks forward to working alongside parishioners and clergy to know God in Jesus Christ and to make Christ known to others.

The Rev. Dr. Alexander McCurdy, III
Associate Rector
 

Sandy worked as a parish priest and school chaplain (Episcopal Academy) before returning to graduate school in the late 1960's and training as a Jungian Analyst. He then practiced in Berlin, Rome, New York and Philadelphia, taught in several Jung Institutes and in the Department of Psychiatry at Jefferson Medical College. After retiring from this work in 2003, Sandy offers some of his time to St. David's for parish visitations and other priestly duties. As he was heard to say recently, "Look here, or 'behold' if you prefer: psychology helps a lot of people, to be sure. But the only real cure for the soul is in the realization of the Gospel. What makes St. David's quite special is that the Rector, priests and people of St. David's get that, and profoundly so. I am honored to join in their mission."
