Introducing our 2021-2022 Seminarian Intern: Paul Keene
Paul is a postulant for Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church through the Diocese of Massachusetts. He is sponsored by St Peter’s Episcopal Church, Cambridge. In addition to being a member of St Peter’s, Paul began discerning while serving the parish as the minister of music and director of choirs, a position he held for three years. He also served as the Administrator and Minister of Digital Worship during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prior to beginning seminary studies at YDS, Paul earned a MM in early music at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA and a BM in vocal performance at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA. He has also passionately worked in the Hospitality industry for 11 years. It has been in working with and in the Church that he discovered many of the ways God has been leading him over the years; and how God has been calling, and continues to call, him into ordained ministry.
Paul’s principal interests include ecclesiology, Christian formation and catechesis, and American religiosity. This summer Paul completed his first unit of Clinical Pastoral Education at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD.
Paul and his partner, Corey, currently live in New Haven and moved there from Boston. They enjoy getting to know the city as best they can, while paying great heed to the circumstances of the pandemic. They are looking forward to a time when they can take fuller advantage of the city, the campus, and the many coffee shops nearby to enjoy a cappuccino and pastry over good conversation with friends—new and old.
