INTERIM RECTOR – THE REV. ALLEN W. FARABEE
I came to St. Catherine’s when my wife and I retired from Buffalo, NY and returned to Florida, settling in Wesley Chapel near our grandchildren. For several years I assisted the rector on Sundays. Now I have been called to serve as Interim Rector while St. Catherine’s undertakes to call a new rector. I am a native of Florida and have served in parishes in Dade County, Ft. Lauderdale, Wisconsin, Illinois, Connecticut and Buffalo, NY. In my last years of active service I was the Dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral in Buffalo. After my retirement in 2004 I served as interim rector for several parishes in Western New York. I also practiced law as an immigration attorney. I started out in life to be an opera singer, so now, in retirement, I play the French horn in the Wesley Chapel Wind Ensemble and swim laps in the pool to keep aging at bay! Welcome to St. Catherine’s Church.
