BankstonThe Rev. Paul A. Bankston accepted the challenge, and St. Mary’s small congregation greeted him in February 1969.

His rectorship started out auspiciously, but then, sadly, he became terminally ill and died on August 24, 1971.

The Rev. Frederick Wandall, a priest on the faculty of St. Stephen’s School, who had been assisting St. Mary’s during the rector’s illness, was appointed rector pro tempore until a new rector could be called.
