Rev. Dr. George Rambow
Rector


 

George grew up in Houston, TX and received his BA in music from the University of North Texas. Throughout high school and his first few years of college, George was an atheist. The summer before his junior year, God changed his life, leading him to follow Christ quite literally around the globe by serving on short term mission trips to Mexico, Russia, and South Korea. After graduating from UNT, George worked as a music director at a church in Denton, TX, where he met his future wife, Emily. A year after their wedding, the Rambows moved to Argentina, where they served as missionaries for four years.

After returning to the United States, George and Emily moved to Princeton, where George earned both his MDiv and PhD (in the history of Christianity) at Princeton Theological Seminary. In 2019, on the Feast of the Presentation, George was ordained to the priesthood at All Saints’ Episcopal Church. Later that year, he and his family moved to Starkville, MS, where George served as the Episcopal Chaplain to Mississippi State University and Assistant Priest at the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection. In 2023, George gratefully and joyfully accepted a call to return to Princeton and serve as the rector of All Saints’. George heartily enjoys (more or less equally) adventure, food, stories, music, fresh mountain air, and casual or profound conversation (about almost anything). He and Emily have two wonderful daughters and a quirky sheepadoodle.

Rev. Canon Joan E. Fleming 
Priest Associate

Born and educated in England, Joan came initially to Princeton in 1961, engaged to John V. Fleming, with whom she has now racked up 54 years of married life. At first resistant to the idea of women priests, she nevertheless felt drawn to enter seminary in the mid-70s, and by the time of graduation in 1979 had begun to entertain thoughts of entering the priesthood—only to have to give priority instead to the unexpected arrival of a third child. By 1986, however, she was ordained deacon and entered parish ministry.

All Saints was Megan's home church when she moved to Princeton in 1983. She sang in the choir, taught Sunday School, served on Vestry and was a Senior Warden. All Saints sponsored Megan for ordination to the priesthood. She attended New Brunswick Theological Seminary, a seminary of the Reformed Church in America located in New Brunswick, New Jersey, but received her M. Div. from General Theological Seminary. In 2014 she was ordained to the priesthood by The Right Reverend William (Chip) Stokes, Bishop of New Jersey. Megan had a bi-vocational ministry, serving as priest-in-charge of St. Luke's in Ewing and of counsel to the law firm of Stevens & Lee, until 2023 when she retired both from parish ministry and her law practice. Nevertheless, Megan remains busy in retirement, supplying for other congregations within the Diocese, and consulting for her former law firm, as well as traveling and having fun with her grandchildren. With her husband, Tom Bodenberg, she volunteers weekly for the Franklin Food Bank. In addition, Megan leads worship at an assisted living facility in Bridgewater every Thursday morning. She is a member of "Project Resource," which is the Diocese of NJ's Stewardship Commission. She and Tom live in Griggstown near the D&R Canal.
