Starting this August, the Reverend Taylor Daynes joined the Episcopal Church at Cornell as our new chaplain. Taylor comes to ECC and Ithaca most recently from Rochester, New York, where she served as deacon at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Before that, she lived in Baltimore, Maryland and worked as Community Engagement Coordinator at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, and as an instructor in the Creative Writing department at Johns Hopkins University. She’s studied Anglican Theology at the University of Toronto, holds a Master of Fine Arts in poetry from Johns Hopkins, an MA in religion from Yale Divinity, and a BA in English from Vanderbilt University. She’s also a published poet and former professional gardener. She looks forward to sharing these and other interests with ECC, and to becoming a part of the life of the community.
