Summer Clergy

The Reverend Jacob Smith officiates on June 27 through August 15, 2021.

The Reverend Jacob Smith is the third Rector of Calvary-St. George’s Church, located on both Gramercy and Stuyvesant Parks in New York City. Jake was born on the Navajo Reservation and raised in Yuma, Arizona. He graduated from the University of Arizona in 2000 with a B.A. in History, with an emphasis in Near Eastern Studies. He received his M. Div. from Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry in May, 2006; was ordained to the diaconate in June, 2006 in the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego; and ordained a priest at NYC’s Calvary Church in December, 2006. Jacob began his ministry at Calvary-St. George’s as the curate. In 2012 he was called by the vestry to serve as the Priest-in-Charge, and instituted as Rector of the parish in January, 2017. Under Jacob’s leadership, Calvary-St. George’s congregation has multiplied greatly and been featured by the diocese as one of the most thriving and growing parishes of New York City.
Jacob serves on the Board of Directors of the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agency, is a trustee of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City, and founding board member of Mockingbird Ministries. Bishop Andrew Dietsche recently appointed Jacob as the dean of the Lower Manhattan Clericus.
Jacob is married to Melina Smith, a floral designer, who previously worked as a behavior therapist in Arizona and social worker at the Children’s Aid Society in New York City. In NYC, Melina has created original Sunday School material, and leads a team which has developed original theatre, art, and music, for a thriving Creative Arts Camp for children. Melina and Jake are the parents of Sophia and Henry.

The Reverend Canon Jonathan Huyck officiates on August 22 and August 29, 2021. 

The Rev. Canon Jonathan Huyck is the rector of Grace Church in Providence, RI, where he has served since 2010. Prior to coming to Grace, Jonathan served as Canon Pastor of the American Cathedral in Paris, where he is an honorary canon. A native New Yorker, Jonathan is a graduate of Brown University, the University of Chicago Divinity School, and General Seminary in New York City. Most crucially, Jonathan is an alumnus of Twilight Park Day Camp and a life-long (well, since age 3, anyway) Twilighter, having grown up with brother Peter, sister Laura, and parents Phil and Mary in the yellow cottage at the top of Thank You Ma’am Road. “I have many happy memories of both the Park and All Angels, and I am thrilled and humbled to lead worship at the church of my youth and preach from the same pulpit as Bob Massey and Fred Burnham. My wife (Ann) and sons (Ben, 10 and Nate, 6) and I look forward to being with you all this summer!”22

The Reverend Kate Heichler officiates on September 5th, 2021.

Kate has been the rector of Christ Church in La Plata, MD since 2018. Ordained a priest in 2004, she has served congregations in Connecticut and Washington, DC, and holds an MDiv (summa cum laude) from Yale Divinity School, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Hartford Seminary. A prolific writer and crafter of worship experiences, Kate is passionate about the church’s healing ministry. She publishes a daily spiritual reflection on the upcoming Sunday’s gospel reading (Water Daily). Christ Church is happy to share her with our sister church, Christ Church Wayside.
