Meet the Rev. Canon Ron David, M.D.

We are pleased to welcome the Rev. Canon Ronald David, M.D. to preach this Sunday. Ron has served as both priest and physician over his career, and retired this year as chaplain, spiritual director, and supervisor of clinical pastoral education at Good Samaritan Hospital in downtown Los Angeles. Over the last decade he has trained dozens of clergy and laity in hospital chaplaincy.

Ron is a graduate of the State University of New York at Buffalo where he earned a BA in psychology and a Doctor of Medicine degree. In 2003 he earned a Master of Divinity degree from the Virginia Theological Seminary, and he was ordained to the priesthood in the Episcopal Church. He is married to Debbi David, who is also soon to retire as Head of School from our own St. James School this June.

Celebration of Debbi and the Rev. Canon Ron David

As most of us know, Debbi David will be retiring as Head of St. James School at the end of the school year—but not without our grateful send-off.

On Sunday, June 10th, directly after our Baccalaureate service, we will have an all-parish potluck lunch, where the congregation can thank and appreciate Debbi and Ron’s time among us, and to wish them both the best as they move into their retirement to North Carolina! Come, eat, and celebrate!

Faithfully yours,
Stephen Yeazell & Emily Abbott
