Announcing CoOR’s New Rector

The Vestry is pleased to announce that Rev. Megan Holding has accepted our call to become our next rector. Rev. Holding comes to us from Northeastern University where she has been the Episcopal Chaplain to that community since 2017. She has also served as a chaplain to Boston College and as an Assistant Rector and Seminarian at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Brookline.

Rev. Holding graduated from Yale Divinity School with a Master of Divinity and received a Certificate in Anglican Studies from Berkeley Divinity School, the Episcopal seminary affiliated with Yale. Prior to entering the priesthood, she was a practicing attorney at a major Boston law firm specializing in health care law and was active as a lay leader at her sponsoring parish in downtown Boston. She grew up in Ohio, graduated from Amherst College and Georgetown University Law Center, and worked for a federal judge in Kentucky before moving to New England.

While Redeemer will be her first position as a rector, we have no doubts that she is ready for this next stage of her ministry – and that we, as a parish, are well suited to help her grow in that role and with us in faith.

Rev. Holding lives in Wellesley with her husband, Chris, and their two daughters.
