The Rev. Canon George Sumner
Elected as the 7th bishop of
The Episcopal Diocese of Dallas
The Anglican Communion
Our Merciful Saviour is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion which has over 70 million members. The Episcopal Church places scripture, tradition and reason as a foundation by which people come to know the truth of God in Jesus Christ. We are a Gospel Church, a praying church and a thinking church. It is a church for those of deep faith and devotion, as well as a church for those trying to find their way while struggling with questions of faith. It is a church where seeking, learning, and inquiring are encouraged and supported. Most of all, it is a Church which raises up the love of God in Jesus Christ, Our Merciful Saviour.
The Rev. Dr. David Petrash is the Vicar of Our Merciful Saviour. Father Petrash is beginning his fifth year of service to this community. He came to Kaufman from Denison, Texas, where he was Interim Head of School for St. Luke's Episcopal Church and School. Following an extensive career in college teaching and administration at Grayson County College in Denison, Texas, he was the Chaplain for Home Hospice of Grayson, Cooke, and Fannin Counties.
Father Petrash and his wife, Laura, take an active part in the Kaufman community. Fr. David is a member of the City of Kaufman Board of Adjustment. Fr. and Mrs. Petrash are active menbers of the Kaufman Lions Club, where she serves on the Board of Directors. They have a long history of involvment in Boy Scouts, and started a new Cub Scout pack ( Pack 1909) at Our Merciful Saviour. Fr. David and Laura are working to continue the legacy of community involvement that has always been an important part of the ministry of Our Merciful Saviour.
