The Rev. Richard Tarsitano
A life-long Anglican, Richard Tarsitano was born in Denver, Colorado, but moved around quite a bit including stops in Connecticut, South Carolina, Missouri, Louisiana, and Georgia. He joined the Navy straight out of high school and spent nine years roaming the high seas aboard ships homeported at Naval Station Mayport. He achieved the rank of chief petty officer before choosing to separate from the Navy in 2013 to pursue a calling to the priesthood.
Father Tarsitano has a Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (Jacksonville) and has been serving as rector since April 30, 2017. His undergraduate work included a BA in English with a minor in Professional Education.
Fr. Tarsitano is the husband of the long-suffering Meghan Tarsitano who graciously puts up with his “book mountains” and incorrigible love of the Chicago Cubs. The family also includes Madeline Rose Tarsitano, and her brother, Hugh Laurence Tarsitano.
