Our Rector

Fr. Sean Maloney

Fr. Maloney, Fr. Sean, or just plain Sean as most people call him, was born in Gary, Indiana. Yes, just like the one in the song! Sean graduated from Indiana University, South Bend with a degree in General Studies. Having given up on his childhood dream of becoming a Jedi Knight or Chicago Bears' linebacker, Sean felt the call to ordained ministry early on in life. The road however, was winding and long! Before leaving for seminary at the University of the South (Sewanee) he worked at the Cathedral of Saint James in South Bend, Indiana doing youth ministries.

Somehow in the midst of school and work he still managed to fall in love and woo his lovely wife, Jessica. It was after marrying Jess that he truly learned what it took to be a student. He followed her down to Purdue University, managing hotels, as she pursued her degree in Veterinary Medicine. Upon Jess receiving her degree they turned the tables and she worked while he finished up his degree and went to seminary. In July 2008, Sean and Jess joined the community of St. Bartholomew's. Sean started out as the Associate Rector for the first year. Then in 2010 was called to be rector after serving as Interim. Since arriving on this new planet of Texas, Sean has been eager to try new things, from kayaking to wearing flip flops. The most exciting thing in his life, however is his 4 year old son Desmond. His joy and playfulness are infectious gifts that he shares readily with Desmond and this community. Desmond Keeps them both plenty busy with his ever changing energy and focus.
Sean is passionate about proclaiming the good news of what God is doing in the world around us at all times. He is just as likely to reference J.K Rowling and Tolkien as he is Paul and Timothy. He believes humor and the ability to laugh at ourselves are characteristics of God that the Church has long since forgotten were important and strives to use both liberally. Finally, he just loves people. Loves their stories, loves their gifts, loves their quirks, and their charms because each of those is a window into a deeper understanding of who God is.
