Fr. Paul Rivard 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 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. Following a curacy at Saint Barnabas, Fr. Rivard moved to Greenville to serve at Saint George’s with Sarah and their four children Jonas, Anna, Elise, and Sasha. Fr. Paul received a Bachelor’s degree in English from Toccoa Falls College and both the Masters of Divinity and Masters of Theology degrees from Erskine Seminary. He now serves on the DEUS Board of Examining Chaplains, the Provincial Missions Board, the Domestic Missions Board, and as Dean of Appalachia.
