The Rev. Michael J. Hodges
Rector

Michael Hodges (2)Michael was born and raised in Albion, a small farming community east of Waterville, Maine, where his grandfather was the pastor of a small Baptist church. Michael graduated from Gordon College (B.A. in English) and earned his M.Div at Princeton Theological Seminary. After a year of study in Germany he moved back to the Boston area and was ordained to the priesthood in 2002. In 2001 he was appointed to serve as vicar of St. Paul’s in Brockton, an urban parish with a thriving soup kitchen ministry. In 2005 he was appointed to serve as Priest-in-Charge at St. Paul’s in Dedham and was subsequently called as rector. After 9 years at St. Paul’s, Michael was called to serve as the fifteenth rector of Christ Church in 2014.

Michael is married to Laurie, who works as a nurse at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and they have two daughters, Emma, a student at the Commonwealth Honors College at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Sally, a student at Doherty Middle School.

In his “off” time Michael enjoys home improvement projects at a summer home in Ocean Park, a Chautauqua community that is part of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, as well as golf, basketball and hiking. Above all, he enjoys sitting at table (and eating thereof) with family, friends and parish.

As he articulated in his first sermon to the parish, Michael is passionate about proclaiming that “everyone is welcome at God’s table”, not only as an invitation to the altar for communion, but more broadly ensuring that everyone experiences true welcome at God’s banquet feast -- or the “kingdom of God”.

You may reach Rev. Hodges by calling him at the Glebe House, 978-475-0529, ext. 11, or by e-mailing him.
