Retirement Reception for Ken Coleman

16x9 Retirement Reception - Ken Coleman.jpg

Ken Coleman, longtime organist at St. Paul’s, is retiring. Join us for a reception in his honor on Sunday, February 3, at 12:15 pm, in Fondren Hall.

Ken holds degrees in music education and organ from the University of Houston (UH). He began singing in St. Paul’s Choir in 1979 while still at UH. It also was at UH where he first heard a pipe organ. His response was “Wow!”

“Wow!” also is the response to his many contributions to St. Paul’s, especially the music department. 

“In addition to playing the organ on Sundays and for many special services, performances, weddings, funerals, and on choir tours, Kenny has worked tirelessly in front of and behind the scenes,” noted Director of Music Christopher Betts. 

“He has helped with choir rehearsals and sectionals, the music library, service planning, receptions and choir gatherings, the pastoral care of choir members, and as the driving force behind our annual St. Paul’s Choir Gingerbread Bake Sale. His greatest strength is his servant’s heart. He will be sorely missed.”
