Reverend Dr. Penny Gadzini, Interim Pastor
Richard Santoro, Assistant to the Pastor
Richard Santoro was born and raised in the Babylon United Methodist Church. There is almost no aspect of church life that Richard has not been either a leader or an active participant in.
A Lay Speaker for over a decade, Richard has served locally and in other churches, balancing preaching, leading, and teaching both the youth and adults of our congregation. Most recently Richard received his Bachelor’s Degree from St. Joseph’s College with honors, majoring in Religious Studies with a minor in Psychology. Richard’s thesis focused on how we experience Christian and spiritual art, and his study was a broad view of the religious and spiritual journey that we experience individually and collectively.
Richard feels that we are all unique, wonderful individuals working together in fellowship and love to model our lives after the example of Jesus, and he hopes to help each person in their journey with Christ, and with their own ministry within the Babylon United Methodist Church.
Neil is both the Musical Director and Organist. He directs the Chancel Choir and performs with them at all regular Sunday 9:30 am services.
Doris is our Church Administrator and an active lifelong member of Babylon UMC. She is a Lay Servant and has participated in many areas of church life. Doris is the Membership Secretary Chair of the Worship Committee and a United Methodist Woman.
