Clergy and Staff


The Rev. Dr. Ted J. Gaiser


Our Rector , The Rev. Ted Gaiser,  joined us at Grace in early 2016 and brought with him great enthusiasm and a wide range of education and experience. His installation at Grace in May was a joyous Celebration of New Ministry with Bishop Stephen Lane celebrating and many clergy throughout the Diocese participating. Ted has served three churches in the Diocese of Massachusetts and two in Colombia, South America, and he was a member of the Bishop’s staff in both Dioceses. He speaks fluent Spanish and is an honorary Canon in the Diocese of Colombia. He holds an undergraduate degree in history and religious studies, graduate degrees in theology and business administration and a doctorate in sociology. Ted has been a part of mission delegations to the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, and has lived in Bolivia, Paraguay and Colombia. He served as president for the Global Episcopal Mission Network, a group of mission leaders in the Episcopal Church, and he is currently president of Colforpaz, which supports the mission activities of the Episcopal Diocese of Colombia.

Music Director


Donna celebrates 25 years of making music at Grace.

Grace’s Music Director is Ms. Donna Sewall.  Donna’s gifts are many: as well as organ and piano, she plays guitar, wind instruments, fiddle, and practically anything else than can make a tune.  Her vision of a church choir is one where everyone gets to sing; and she has the gracious ability to take singers of all different levels of skill and blend them into a wonderful ensemble.  Choir rehearsals are Thursday evenings from 7 pm to 8:30, and Sunday mornings from 9:30 leading into the 10:15 service.  Read more about Grace’s music ministry here, or email Donna for more information.







We are pleased to welcome Darla Richter as our Office Assistant!  Office hours are generally Monday through Friday, 9 am to 12:30 pm.  There are exceptions for vacations and during the days immediately following Christmas and Easter. Telephone us at 207.443.3792; if we’re not in, you can leave a message and we return calls promptly, or you can email us.
