Fr. Paul Rivard, the rector of The Anglican Church of St. George the Martyr, came to the southern United States from Saskatchewan, Canada in the mid 1990’s. In the small town of Toccoa he met his wife Sarah, a native Georgian, and they were married in 2001. After living in northeast Georgia and Atlanta for several years, they have now happily settled in Greenville with their four children Jonas, Anna, Elise, and Sasha. Fr. Paul received his bachelor’s degree in English from Toccoa Falls College and his Masters of Divinity from Erskine Seminary in Due West, SC. After being a member of the Anglican Province of America since 2003, Fr. Paul was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Walter Grundorf in July 2010 at St. Barnabas Anglican Church in Dunwoody, Georgia.
