He is bilingual and will celebrate in English & Spanish services.
Fr. Baker grew up in Nebraska and made New York his home during his late teens. He graduated from the Virginia Theological Seminary and was ordained at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York in 2018. He is the father of two grown children, Meagan and Justin.
