The Rev. Edward S. Prevost
The Rev. Edward (Ned) S. Prevost has been happily summering with his family on Cuttyhunk since 1982. A graduate of Trinity College, Hartford, and The General Theological Seminary in New York City, he served parishes in Connecticut (22 years) and Illinois (19 years) before retiring in 2011. In the tradition of William Munds and Boone Porter, Ned is currently the Celebrant of the Episcopal Eucharist at the Cuttyhunk Church on Sunday mornings in July and August. Ned and his wife Bev have two daughters, Elizabeth (married to Michael Guenther, daughter Grace,) and Marnie (married to Matthew Weir, son Timothy,) all of whom love Cuttyhunk and eagerly look forward to their stays every summer.
Ann Conway’s family rented a house every summer on Cuttyhunk and she learned to sail and tried to race at Cuttyhunk Yacht Club during her childhood. She and
her husband have spent summers here for the past 40 years. The Church has always been special to Ann from the time she sang in the youth choir will growing up. She has been the Catholic lay leader for the past 14 years and enjoys the opportunity to play a roll in continuing the ecumenical spirit of the Church.
Methodist Lay Leader
Tim grew up in Cohasset, Massachusetts attending the Unitarian church on the common there. He drifted away from active worship during a career in marketing in Boston and New York, but when children came along with their enrollment in Sunday school, Tim acquired a renewed commitment to active worship, this time in the Congregational tradition. That interest in Christianity has continued to deepen with the study of the bible and the works of such thinkers as Deitrich Bonhoeffer, Paul Tillich and Karl Barth.
Tim and his wife Judith are full members of the Cuttyhunk Union Methodist Church. He has served as trustee of the church since 2004 and as Chairman since 2006. He also serves as co-ordinator for the church’s connection with the Jesse Ball DuPont Foundation which lends significant support to the church. He has been a member of the Council since its formation in 2011.
