Ipswich Local News: "Locally grown" priest takes over in Topsfield's Episcopal church

Trinity Episcopal Church of Topsfield, Boxford and Middleton has said it “is excited to announce the Rev. Jennifer Vath as fourth rector of the church.”

Vath, who likes to be addressed simply as “Jen,” is the daughter of Richard and Lillian Estes, formerly of Topsfield. She is a 1982 graduate of Masconomet Regional High School and grew up in Topsfield.

The Rev. “Woody” Silvius, founding rector of the church, was her childhood priest. She recalls him saying a birthday blessing prayer for her every year at the altar where she now warmly welcomes everyone as she celebrates Holy Communion.
