THE VERY REV. KENNETH R. PEPIN

Rector

Our new rector as of February 1, 2019 hails from the great state of Massachusetts. He was born to the late Jean M Pepin and Alma Pepin. He has an older brother Ronnie who resides with his wife Claire in Attleboro Massachusetts. An older sister Janet and her wife Francie they reside in Boone NC and in Ocala Florida.

Ken is married to Mery and they have twin children, Gregory and Katherine who are 16 and attend Fairport High School.  Gregory is an avid tennis player and is presently on the Varsity team at Fairport.  Katherine loves the flute and volleyball.  They are both in the Journey To Adulthood program here at St Luke’s.

Ken began his religious career as a Roman Catholic missionary priest in1987 serving in Canada and Argentina before leaving the Roman church and being received into the Episcopal Church as priest in 2000.  Along this rather adventurous path he worked as a social worker for the City of Charlottesville VA and with the Salvation Army there. 

As an Episcopal priest Ken has served in the diocese of East Carolina, Alabama, Ohio and Rochester NY. Most recently Ken has come to us from the parishes of Grace, Scottsville NY and St Andrew’s Caledonia where there was mutual appreciation in the ministry.


St Luke’s is familiar with Ken as he has served here for a short time covering the previous rector’s leave back in 2013. Ken is excited to re- connect with our parish and looks forward to working with parish leaders to enact our strategic plans and goals for the future.  He hopes that his experience and his energy and love will be a great fit for us.  He hopes to be able to reach out to those who may have been estranged for one reason or another from our St Luke’s family.  So, don’t hesitate to contact him by email at kenstlfpt@gmail.com or 585 201-2669.
