The Rev. Tony Green steps into the pulpit

Experienced and beloved supply priest leads St. Andrew’s worship services


CHELAN – As many of you have noticed, the Rev. Anthony (Tony) Green has joined the congregation as the Bishop’s Committee seeks a new, permanent priest after the retirement of previous priest, the Rev. Linda Mayer.
With 17 years of experience as a supply priest in the Diocese of Spokane, as well as at many different parishes in various dioceses, including Atlanta, Georgia, Rev. Green has demonstrated excellent skills, an articulate voice, and unique observations.
“Tony is a very real and practical person whose big heart shows in everything he does and touches,” businessman Robert James said in LinkedIn.
Rev. Green studied at Wenatchee Valley College, Central Washington University, and the Toronto School of Theology, where he gained his Doctor of Divinity degree. In addition, he obtained a Nursing Assistant Certificate from the Washington State Dept. of Health. Plus, Tony is a CASA volunteer guardian ad litem in Chelan and Douglas counties to advocate for children in the juvenile justice and family court systems.  
“We are so blessed to have Tony Green temporarily join our liturgical team at St. Andrew’s Chelan,” Senior Warden Linda Cox said. “He brings us a new perspective to Sunday services that is forthright and illuminating. I for one enjoy his homilies. And, I believe I speak for other parish members as well.”
Rev. Green lives with his family in Wenatchee.
St. Andrew's Church, built more than 114 years ago, is the oldest permanent structure in Chelan. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the authentic log church attracts many visitors. The public is welcome at Sunday services held at 10 a.m. Located at 120 E. Woodin Avenue, P.O. Box 1226 Chelan, WA 98816 the church may be contacted at 509-682-2851.
