St. Stephen’s Welcomes New Sexton

Mr. Chance Ritchie begins service as Sexton of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church on Monday, August 12, 2019. As Sexton, Chance is responsible for the support of parish ministries through the care and maintenance of our church facilities and grounds.

Chance comes to us with 25+ years of experience in the property management industry. He began as a general contractor specializing in residential remodeling. More recently he’s worked as an independent properties manager and maintenance specialist. In this role, he completed everything from bathroom remodels, to handling all manner of maintenance challenges, while also managing relationships with many vendors and sub-contractors.

Chance lives in South Minneapolis near the Lake Harriet Rose Garden and has two children: Paige (age 11), and Marek (age 8.) Chance is excited by this new opportunity and looks forward to being welcomed by the community.

His first Sunday with us will be August 18th and we can all look forward to sharing a St. Stephen’s welcome with him then!
