All Saints' Church
While we said farewell to our Interim Rector and while we wait in anticipation for our permanent Rector The Rev. Dr George Rambow we are blessed to have many who will be serving as supply. They include The Rev. Canon Joanne Izzo, The Rev. Tim Jones, The Rev. Canon Jack Belmont, The Rev. Jill Zook-Jones, The Rev. Shawn Armington, The Rev. Canon Joan Fleming, Ms. Morgan Proffit-Davis, and The Rev. Maddy Patterson. We are very thankful to them that they are willing to assist us in this time of transition.
Rev. Dr. George Rambow
(Beginning December 18th)
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
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.
Rev. Canon Jack Belmont
Jack Belmont, a lifelong Episcopalian, was born and raised in Ewing Township, New Jersey. He graduated from Rider University in 1968 with a B.A. in Secondary Ed., and from the Philadelphia Divinity School with an M.Div. in 1971. He was ordained to the Priesthood in October of 1971 at Trinity Cathedral, Trenton. He received the degree of Master of Sacred Theology from New York Theological Seminary in 1981 with a specialty in Pastoral Counseling. He served at St. Andrew’s, Camden and St. Luke’s, Gladstone prior to being called as Rector of St. Matthew’s, Pennington in 1976, where he served for 37 years until his retirement in June of 2013.
Rev. Dr. Karl F. Morrison
Karl Morrison entered the priesthood during a career as a scholar-teacher and has continued to serve in a bi-vocational ministry. While appointed as Lessing Professor of History and Poetics at Rutgers-New Brunswick, and a parishioner at All Saints’, he began discussions about ordained ministry These led to his ordination as deacon in the Diocese of New Jersey, first as deacon (1998) and a year later as priest. Since ordination, he has served as curate at Christ Church, New Brunswick, priest-in-charge at St. Michael’s Chapel, Rutgers (New Brunswick-Piscataway), priest associate of All Saints’ Sisters of the Poor in Oxford, England, and priest associate at All Saints’.
Gloria Kierniesky came to us in January 2023. She has many years of experience in administrative jobs. In her free time she enjoys singing and reading.

He is gifted in writing songs and poetry and has written several for All Saints’ Church including, "16 All Saints Road" and "Early Morning Service." He also enjoys playing the acoustic guitar.
