The Rev. Hank Tuell, who has served Trinity Church Wall Street as both a sacristan and a transitional deacon, was ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, December 2. The Rt. Rev. Mary Glasspool, suffragan bishop for the Episcopal Diocese of New York, ordained Father Tuell, and he celebrated the Eucharist for the first time at 9am Sunday morning on December 3, the first Sunday of Advent.

You can watch his first sermon as an Episcopal priest below. Father Tuell will continue his ministry as the Associate for Community Life at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Chandler, Arizona.
