The Rev. Michael Gray
Fr. Michael was the previous at St. Stephen’s, when he retired in 2012. He enjoyed a year of retirement before being asked to serve at St. Luke’s in Remington. He then I retired from there, only to be asked 6 months later to fill in at Emmanuel in Rapidan, until they were able to find a new and very capable rector. Here in Culpeper, he enjoys spending time with his family: wife, Lynn, and his children, grandchildren, and great-grand babies. Fr. Michael also writes music and plays guitar, as you'll enjoy in some of his services.
Fr. Michael will conduct services and provide pastoral care at St. Stephen's until March 18, or until an interim priest is called to serve here.
