St. Mark’s is pleased to welcome the Reverend Dr. Robert Flanagan. Bob will serve as Supply

Priest until June 1st, at which time he will become our Interim Priest-in-Charge. He has extensive experience in interim work, having served at churches in Armonk, Pleasant Valley, Scarsdale, and most recently Christ Church, Rye. He brings to St. Mark’s a wealth of experience as a "Priest, Author, and Educator,” in addition to an early career in the financial sector.

Born and raised in Stamford, CT, Bob is a graduate of Trinity College in Hartford where he majored in English with a focus on writing poetry. He rowed for Trinity College for four years and served as Captain for two of those years. Bob attended Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS), graduating in 2003. He served as Associate Rector at St. Matthew’s Bedford for five years. He then returned to his alma mater Brooks School, where he served as School Minister, Chair of the Theology Department, dorm parent to forty boys, and a coach of the rowing team. The Diocese of New York then beckoned and he began his service as an Interim Pastor.

Bob has a Doctorate degree from VTS, where his thesis work centered around Christian spirituality, leadership, and outreach to the churchless. He and his wife Lanie live in Connecticut and are the parents of two children, Caity and Dan, both college graduates, pursuing careers in health and wellness and software development respectively.
