Sandy Benes

I’m Sandy Benes.  I have four children, seven grandchildren, and have been married to my husband, Mike for almost 53 years.  I’m originally from Adrian, attended Adrian College which is where Mike and I met.
After several years of theological study at the Whitaker School of Theology, I was ordained as deacon in 1980 and as priest in 1984.  I served the Episcopal Church in Adrian until called to St. Michael’s in 1982 and then made rector in 1984.  I served there for twenty-three years and retired in order to spend more time with our growing family. 
Since then, I’ve been serving as a supply priest in churches in this local area, including churches in Hillsdale, Michigan Center, and of course, All Saints, Brooklyn.  I love what I do and am grateful to have opportunities to serve in places where I can share in ministry with others.  I believe that we are all called to discover each other’s gifts and then provide opportunities to develop those gifts so that we all may serve God in our own ways under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
