Episcopal Church

Our Rector


                 The Rev'd. Marcus Geo. Halley
The Rev. Marcus George Halley serves the Dean of Formation for the Episcopal Church in Connecticut and Missional Priest-in-Charge of Church of the Holy Spirit. Before coming to Connecticut and Holy Spirit, Marcus served as the Rector of Saint Paul's Church in Minneapolis, Missioner for Evangelism for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, and adjunct Professor of Preaching at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities.
He currently holds a Master of Sacred Theology degree from Sewanee, a Master of Divinity from the Interdenominational Theological Center, and a Bachelor of Arts from Johnson C. Smith University. He is also completing his studies as a Doctor of Ministry student at the School of Theology at the University of the South and expects to graduate in May 2022. His vocational and professional interests lie at the intersections of mission and evangelism, discipleship and leadership development, and liturgy. 
When he is not preaching and presiding, teaching and forming leaders, Marcus can probably be found writing. His forthcoming book Formed!, due out in April 2020 from Church Publishing, explores the ways our liturgical life transforms us by shaping our perspectives and interactions as God's people called to engage God's mission rooted first in God's grace. Marcus can also be found baking, running, or walking his 3 year old "contemplative" beagle, DuBois.
