Chaplain & Director

Jean-Daniel earned his undergraduate degrees at Harvard and his master of divinity at Yale. He has begun, and seriously intends to finish (but for your own good, maybe don't ask him about it at a party) a PhD at Université de Montréal.

He grew up in Massachusetts and New Brunswick, attending Pentecostal and Mormon churches, dropped out of high school to be a professional dancer, and that is how he has become an Anglican priest in Québec.*

Outside of his ministry at St. Martha's Chapel, Jean-Daniel is a Broadway superfan, Anne of Green Gables expert (self-appointed), amateur photographer, YouTuber focused on religious education, and raising two perfect humans and two ungrateful cats. 

His most deeply held belief outside of the official historical doctrine of Christianity is that the Boston Red Sox are God's favourite sports team. A merman who spends most of his free time in water, Jean-Daniel's most controversial view is that our ancestors' move out of the ocean was a terrible error.
