He and Teresa were here from 1986 to 1992 when he was called to serve a parish in Pensacola. In 2001, they returned to Jacksonville when Edward became dean of St. John's Cathedral. Last August, they retired from Christ Church in Coronado and returned to their home here at the Beaches. Edward earned a B.A. from Sewanee and a master of divinity from Yale. He is a retired Navy Chaplain. Teresa is an accomplished iconographer who has taught several workshops here in Jacksonville. They have two grown children-Austin and Sarah. Edward will serve as a supply priest for several Sundays this summer as we search for an interim priest.
