Christ Church Announces New Rector

Rev. Joshua Caler


A (Western) Pennsylvania native, Fr. Joshua is eager to begin ministry at Christ Church and in the Diocese of Pennsylvania. Most recently, he lived and served at St. Stephen’s House, Oxford with his family while working on a post-graduate degree with the theology faculty of the University of Oxford. A graduate of Grove City College (B.A., 2004) and Duke Divinity School (M.Div., 2011), Fr. Joshua previously served as the Canon for Evangelism and Parish Life of Christ Church Cathedral, Nashville in the Diocese of Tennessee. There, he coordinated young adult ministry, led the Cathedral’s evangelism efforts, and worked to welcome and incorporate newcomers into the Cathedral’s diverse congregation. 

“Christ Church is a great parish and I am very excited to serve alongside such dedicated lay leaders, continuing the work of building up the Kingdom of God in Pottstown,” he writes. “What has drawn me to Christ Church is the centrality of outreach to the parish, the sustained investment in the community, and a strong commitment to Christian formation, education, and ongoing discipleship. I look forward to diving in to this ministry with you. My family and I are grateful for the welcome we’ve already received from the Search Committee and Vestry, and are eager to get to know the congregation in the coming weeks.”

Along with his wife, Mary, and daughter, Beatrice, Fr. Joshua will relocate to Pottstown in March. His first Sunday at Christ Church will be the Third Sunday in Easter (April 15)
