Fr. Robert James Laws accepted the call to be Interim Rector of the Church of the Advent beginning July 1st, 2012. As Interim Rector, Fr. Rob acts as our primary clergy person fulfilling all the duties of a rector until the search committee and vestry extend a call to the next rector of the Church of the Advent, which is anticipated to happen mid-2013.
Fr. Rob was born and raised in a Pentecostal home in North Carolina, but after experiencing a Solemn High Mass found his true spiritual home in the Episcopal Church. He has deep devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and is a Priest Associate of the Holy House of Our Lady of Walsingham. Fr. Rob also has a strong interest in Spirituality and Eastern Orthodox prayer practices, including praying the Jesus Prayer and iconography. He is currently working on a DMin. in Christian Spirituality at Washington Theological Union.
Fr. Rob has a 14 year old son, Zachary, who enjoys drawing and of course video games. They enjoy spending an afternoon visiting the National Gallery and other museums, but also enjoy hiking, and vegging with a good movie on a lazy Saturday.
