Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Since August we have been without a director of operations for the parish. Working closely with a small committee we prayed and interviewed several candidates for the position. I am pleased to announce that the committee was unanimous agreement on one, and I have called Mr. Scott Pavao to join the staff of Calvary-St. George's as our new Chief Operating Officer. Scott has a BS in Accounting from Franklin Pierce University. For over 20 years, Scott has served in the non-profit sector, most recently at The Stony Brook School, a Christian boarding school in Stony Brook, NY.
Scott is married to Martha Pavao who teaches at the Stony Brook School and they have three children. While not a cradle Episcopalian, most of the milestones in his life have occurred in the Episcopal Church, including his marriage and the baptisms of his children. Scott has also served on the vestry of an Episcopal Church in Long Island and is familiar with our polity. In his free time, he and his family enjoy sushi and ramen, model rockets, and all things tech-related, from gaming to building computers.
I am so thrilled. Scott is clearly called to this position and I believe that he will help us develop and strengthen the parish's infrastructure. Scott will oversee and manage the operations of the parish including the finances and building management. Scott will officially begin on January 3rd and I want to encourage you to come and meet him at church on January 7th.
The Reverend Jacob A. Smith
