The Rev. Paul V. Olsson

College took him to Baltimore, and an early interest in East Asian and international relations drew him to New York for graduate study at Columbia University. Following a career in university administratration at Columbia and NYU, Fr. Paul pursued his true calling to ordained ministry and attended The General Theological Seminary. Ordained in 1999, he went on to serve as Assistant at Christ & St. Stephen's Church on the Upper West Side where he worked to develop the parish's ministry with children and families. In 2003 he was called to St. Paul's as our fifth Rector. When you meet Fr. Paul, you immediately know that he loves being a priest.  Fr. Paul, though grounded in our Anglican tradition, is keenly aware of the need for the church to address the many challenges of the changing times in which we live. He's always available for pastoral concerns and welcomes your inquiries on life at St. Paul's.
