“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace”
1 Peter 4:10
Our Rector, The Right Reverend Dr. Alexander (“Hendy”) Webb
The Right Reverend Dr. Alexander (“Hendy”) Webb was born on 19 October 1951 and raised in Southern New York State. He was educated at Amherst College (Bachelor of Arts in Dramatic Arts), The General Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity), Antioch University (Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and Doctor of Psychology [all but dissertation]), and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (Doctor of Ministry in Marriage and Family Therapy).
He was ordained Deacon in 1978 and Priest in 1979 in the Episcopal Church. He served congregations in Massachusetts and New Hampshire before moving to the Anglican Church in America in 2011. In February of 2017 he was consecrated as Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of the Northeast and is presently Rector of St. Luke’s Anglican Church, Amherst, NH.

The Reverend Canon Ronald Hansen, Honorary Canon and Missionary to Saint Andrew’s Church in Leominster, MA
The Reverend Canon Ronald Hansen was born on June 1st, 1976 in Accra, Ghana. Currently he lives in Leominster, Massachusetts with his family. He was raised in the Anglican Church. From the time he was a young boy, he has always tried to be open to whatever God calls him to do. His great grandfather served as a Canon Emeritus in the Anglican Diocese of Accra which is a diocese of the Church of the Province of West Africa. He instilled in him the love to serve God and His Church, but it never seriously entered his heart and mind that God might call him into the priesthood. He finds joy in serving Mass daily and teaching Sunday school.
He was educated at Fitchburg State University where he earned Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. He entered the seminary and enrolled into Master of Scared Theology program at St. Andrew’s Theological College and Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina. There he became a nominee for diaconal ordination into the ministry in 2015. Three years later he was ordained into the priesthood.
It is his prayer that the Holy Spirit will guide and lead him throughout the journey ahead of him and be present with him always.
Deacon William Dunn
The Rev. Mr. William Dunn was born on July 28, 1942 and lived in Wilton, CT until he was ten years old. He moved with his family to Berkshire County in Massachusetts graduating from Lee High School in 1960 and attending Berkshire Community College.
Deacon Bill worked as a licensed electronics technician maintaining public safety radio and aircraft communications and navigation systems for many years. Most recently he was employed as a Logistics Analyst for Sterilite Corporation, in Townsend, MA retiring after 28 years.
Deacon Bill and his wife Ellie have been married 45 years and have 7 adult children, 22 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. Having grown-up in the Episcopal Church in the late 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s, St. Luke’s Anglican Church was the perfect fit after a few years away from the faith, joining in 2013 and being received into the ACA in 2014.
Feeling a call to the ordained ministry he was accepted as a postulant for Holy Orders in 2015. After Reading for Orders he was ordained to the diaconate on September 27, 2019.

Minister of Music, John Leslie
Having retired from a career as a computer programmer and Internet Service Provider, John Leslie now finds the time to concentrate on his first love: Music. Raised in a family which gathered weekly for string quartets, John started piano lessons at age five, and was playing Mozart piano quartets with the string players by the time he graduated high school. Attending Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie-Mellon) as a physics major, he could always be found at a piano in the College of Fine Arts when they kicked students out at midnight.
As a draftee, he spent the entire two years at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, mostly working night shifts while spending his days at the base Sunday School complex or at the base library. After the Army, he attended Grace Church in Manchester, NH, where he served as Organist while replacing their old Kilgen organ with a mechanical-action Andover Organ and trying to build a harpsichord in the basement. Leaving Grace Church during the late 1970’s, he landed in St. Luke’s Anglican Church of Amherst, NH, sharing Organist duties. After our church building was constructed, he started building the two-manual-and-pedal virtual pipe organ we use today.
