[St. George’s College Jerusalem] The Very Dr. Rev. Graham M. Smith, dean of St. George’s College in Jerusalem has announced the appointment of the Rev. Mike Billingsley as College Chaplain for 2014.
“It is a joy to welcome Mike and Judy Billingsley to the Cathedral Close,” said Smith. “Mike will be a caring pastor as pilgrims find their way to St. George with its first-rate courses, beautiful accommodations and gourmet food!”
The Rev. Billingsley recently retired from Christ Episcopal Church in Medway, Mass. A graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary, Mr. Billingsley was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Atlanta in 1992, following a 20 year career in the United States Coast Guard. His wife, Judy, is an oncology nurse, and they both “fell in love” with the College and the City of Jerusalem when they attended a course April 2013.
