The Very Rev. P. Richard Game
After 17 years as a lawyer (and even more as an active layman), Fr. Dick started his formation for the priesthood at the Candler School of Theology at Emory, where he graduated with a Master of Divinity degree. Ordained to the priesthood in July 2007 at Trinity Church in Columbus, Georgia, Fr. Dick served there for three years. His first service at St. Patrick’s was on Pentecost in 2010, and he was installed as our Rector on St. Patrick’s Day, 2011. In 2016, Bishop Wright named Fr. Dick as Dean of the Northeast Metro Convocation, an area encompassing St. Patrick’s and several other parishes and worshiping communities in DeKalb and Gwinnett Counties. He also serves as Secretary of Diocesan Annual Council. Fr. Dick’s passion in ministry is congregational vitality. He is a graduate of the College for Congregational Development, sponsored by the Diocese of Spokane, and is working with the Diocese of Atlanta on its congregational vitality team.
Fr. Dick is husband to Anne (whom he met when they were undergraduates at Vanderbilt) and father to three adult daughters: Hope, Allison, and Caroline. Anne is a Managing Director and Vice President of the North Highland Company, a management consulting firm. Fr. Dick enjoys the beach, sailing and other water sports, and cycling.
“Every person who walks through our doors bear the light of Christ. All are welcome here, and all are sent out to seek that Christ light in others, partnering with God’s great love, stepping out as creators of justice and joy.”
