Rev. Ted "Fr. Ted" Stanley

Ted was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1963.  In 1977 he resigned as an active pirest to marry Marilyn, his first wife, who passed in 1993.  He has since married Stephanie, our Parish Nurse, at our church in 1997 and has been attending Trinity ever since.  Together they have four sons (step sons for Ted) and seven grandchildren.  He has been active in our community, spending the last 5 of his 17 year carreer with Church World Service at the CWS/CROP Office on Phillips St.  He has served at Church Community Services on Oakland Ave since 2007.  He is now a part of the newly established Food Bank Chaplaincy Ministry representing our congregation in this ecumenical group.  He is also a volunteer for the Center for Hospice Care in Elkhart.  He was added to our Parish Staff in August, 2013.  He enjoys gardening and their home on their river and being with the three dachshunds that own both him and Stephanie.
