Clergy and Administration

Clergy:  The Rev. Charles L. Kamano, Missional Priest


Rev. Kamano is a native of Sierra Leone, West Africa and served as a Roman Catholic priest in Guinea before being received into the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut in the spring of 2017.  He holds degrees in Divinity and Social Communications and is currently also serving as chaplain at Yale-New Haven Hospital.  



Parish Administrator:  Diane Rowley

 Diane can be reached by email at ChristandTheEpiphany@gmail.com or by phone at 203-467-2310.


Music Director:  Barbara Coulombe

 I am a “cradle” Episcopalian who loves music! I started singing in the Junior Choir at age nine and have never stopped. Currently I sing with the Greater New Haven Community Chorus.  In addition to my Master’s degree in Education and minor in Music, I have earned a Theology degree. Music is a big part of our family – my husband George and our daughter Susan both sing in the church choir while another son, Peter, is the Handbell Choir Director at Old South Church in Boston. Our youngest son, David, is involved with music and dance, teaching swing dance with his wife in NC.

 After playing services at St. James Episcopal Church in New Haven for over 25 years, I “retired”. But that only lasted a couple of years and I am blessed to have been the Director of Music at Christ and the Epiphany Episcopal Church since 2009. Over the years, I have been involved with music and worship in a variety of ways including Church and Community Services, Marriage Encounter, Cursillo, Emmaus, Taize’, and courses at Westminster Choir College.

The individual gifts of vestry members are brought together to further God's mission in the world.  The Vestry meets at on the 3rd Sunday of the month after 10:00 a.m. service in the library.  Officers (Treasurer and Clerk) and Wardens serve a one-year term, and Members-at-large serve a three-year term.  Profiles are available here.
