The Reverend Michael Monnot - Rector

Michael was born in the Bay Area, and grew up there and in Fairfield. He came to the Episcopal Church as an adult, drawn by the beauty of its ritual and the intelligence of its theology.

Michael was called to All Saints as Priests-in-charge in 2006, and appointed as Co-Rector in 2007. In 2017 Betsey Monnot was called to a new position in the Office of the Bishop and Michael became our Rector. Michael and Betsey have three sons.
