Celebration of former clergy: Father Hayman

March 2022

The Rev. Robert F. Hayman, who was the Vicar/Rector at St. John’s for 19 years, including during the church’s 50th anniversary, was with us on March 13 as we begin our celebration on past clergy.

Father Hayman preached at our 10:00 a.m. service and shared memories about his years of ministry when we gather in Marsh Hall following the service. Anna Aubry led the discussion.

Fr. Hayman was assigned to St. John’s as Vicar in September 1958. He came from St. George’s by the-River in Rumson, New Jersey. He became Rector on April 19,1960, when St. John’s laid aside its title of mission and became a parish. He married Sarah (Sally) Ann Pritchard on September 8, 1962, and they celebrated 60 years of marriage in 2022. Sally also joined us on March 13.

Fr. Hayman shared about his 19 years at St. John’s, including the 50-year anniversary, the purchase and installation of the organ, and the beginnings of the preschool and the Saints Alive Thrift Shop.
