All Saints Church welcomes interim rector
All Saints Church welcomes Father Paul Fuener as its interim rector.
Father Paul retired as rector of Prince George Winyah Episcopal Church in Georgetown in April after serving for 16 years. He was an assistant rector for four years at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Sewickley, PA., after graduating in 1996 from Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry in Ambridge, PA. Fuener was ordained to the priesthood that same year.
Before seminary, Father Paul was a government contracts attorney with a law firm in Washington, D.C. for 17 years, and before law school, he served two years in the Army as a military policeman.
In this diocese Father Paul has served on the Board of Trustees, the Ecclesiastical Court, the search committee for bishop, the Anglican Communion Development Committee, the Standing Committee, dean of the Georgetown Deanery, and as a spiritual advisor on a Cursillo team.
He and his wife Becky have been married for 44 years. They have two grown children and six grandchildren. They reside in Kingstree, and own a rental house at N. Litchfield Beach.
Father Fuener invites the public to the All Saints Christmas services which include a Christmas Eve Family Service at 5 p.m., a Christmas Eve “Midnight” Service at 10 p.m. and the Christmas Day worship service at 10 a.m. on Dec. 25.
