As staff, we are employed to serve the mission of the church, together with the volunteers members of the church community. We want to work together, creating unity at All Saints’ and discerning God’s desire for us all at this time.

The Rev. Amy E. Richter, PhD
Interim Rector

Direct office: 301-579-0854

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as Interim Rector of All Saints’. As interim clergy, I am fully invested and involved in serving here, but for a limited period of time. During my service, I will focus on the work involved in helping All Saints’ prepare to call and welcome your next Rector, in addition to the regular responsibilities of a priest for the spiritual and pastoral life of a parish. I am very passionate about parish ministry and have experienced the grace and joy that come from being part of a vibrant parish. It has been a special gift to be able to serve with the Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano (my husband) in ministry. We each have areas for which we will be responsible at All Saints’, which will make use of our particular experiences and areas of expertise.

The best way to get in touch with me is to give me a call at the office (301-579-0854). You can also send me an email. It’s best to make an appointment, rather than dropping by. Please call me Amy—it’s the name given to me at my baptism, and that’s the sacrament by which we become part of the church. If you prefer to use a title, Reverend Amy, Doctor, or Pastor are all appropriate. I look forward to meeting you and serving with you in this place.

Here’s a little more about me:
In the 28 years since ordination, I’ve had the privilege of serving parishes (Advent in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania; St. Chrysostom’s in Chicago; St. Paul’s in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; St. Anne’s in Annapolis, the Parish of Pasadena and Cormack, in Newfoundland Labrador, Canada) and on the staff of the Diocese of Maryland. Prior to going to Newfoundland, I served as an appointed missionary (Episcopal Volunteer in Mission) in South Africa. I’ve also served as adjunct faculty at the Ecumenical Institute of St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore, and at Queen’s College in Newfoundland Labrador. I hold a PhD in Religious Studies (New Testament) from Marquette University, an MDiv from Princeton Seminary, an MTS from Harvard Divinity School, and a Diploma in Anglican Studies from the General Theological Seminary.

I enjoy writing, especially in service of the Church. Joe and I have co-edited two collections of essays by Episcopal and Anglican authors, Saving Words: 20 Redemptive Words Worth Rescuing and Common Prayer: Reflections on Episcopal Worship (Cascade, 2021 and 2019). We have co-authored two collections of sermons, A Man a Woman, a Word of Love (Wipf & Stock, 2012) and Love in Flesh and Bone (Wipf & Stock, 2013). My book Enoch and the Gospel of Matthew (Wipf & Stock: Princeton Theological Monograph Series 183, 2012) explores the apocalyptic roots of Matthew’s Gospel. I’ve also written a novel based on ancient Jewish and Christian myths and biblical stories, Antimony, published by Wipf & Stock in 2019.

The Rev. Joseph S. Pagano, PhD
Interim Associate Rector

For the past 18 years, I have served parishes in Milwaukee, Baltimore, and Annapolis, and most recently, as an appointed missionary (Episcopal Volunteer in Mission) in South Africa. I earned a Ph.D. in systematic theology and ethics at Marquette University in 2001 with a dissertation on H. Richard Niebuhr. I’ve authored and co-authored five books, and written several scholarly and popular articles, essays, and sermons. My latest book is a collection of essays by wonderful Episcopal and Anglican authors from Canada, Spain, and the UK, co-edited with Amy Richter, called Saving Words: 20 Redemptive Words Worth Rescuing, and published by Cascade. Prior to that, Amy and I co-edited a collection by Episcopal authors on  experiences of common prayer, called Common Prayer: Reflections on Worship in the Episcopal Church, also published by Cascade.  I’ve taught at Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Loyola University in Baltimore, the Ecumenical Institute of St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore, and Queen’s College in Newfoundland Labrador.
