Elections

We elected 1 Warden for a Two-year term, and 3 Vestry members for Three-year terms.

Candidate for Warden: Frank Lombardo
My name is Frank Lombardo. You may have seen me help usher from time to time. I really like to ring the church bell at the 10:00 service!

I’ve been a member of the Vestry for four years now and I currently serve as Senior Warden.

I own a marketing services company helping clients connect with their customers and employees.  We started attending St. Paul’s with my family about twenty-five years ago. My wife Courtney and I raised our two boys here and enjoyed many fun family activities. Now that our kids are “launched”, we attend the 10:00 service and enjoy our new and old church friends.

It’s been my honor and privilege to be a Vestry member of St Paul’s and help guide our church. Our job now is to secure a new minister and help our church grow.

Candidate for Vestry: Sarah Goodyear
Sarah Goodyear and her family (Alan, Trevor-18, and Taylor-15) have been a part of St. Paul’s for over ten years. After moving around the country, living in Watertown, NY, St. Augustine, FL, West Hartford, CT, McKinney, TX, and Omaha, NE, they have settled in Lancaster and she currently teaches in the Iroquois Central School District as a Dyslexia Specialist. Sarah has volunteered in several capacities over the years including teaching Vacation Bible School, providing coffee hour, helping at the chicken barbeques, and more. She is excited to be a bigger part of the St. Paul’s family.

Candidate for Vestry: June Mikulski
Hello!  My name is June Mikulski and I am running for a Vestry position. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because my husband, Paul, is the Junior Warden of St. Paul’s.  We have been involved with St. Paul’s for many years.  Our children attended Sunday school here and I was on the Vestry several years ago.

More recently, I joined the Alter Guild and started working with Vicki in Lego Club.  I will continue to be active in both of those activities.  I really treasure the friendships that I have made at St. Paul’s and love the “community atmosphere”. It is a wonderful church and I look forward to our new beginnings.

Candidate for Vestry: Ken Wohlberg
Kenneth C. Wohlberg was born in the Bronx, NY and as a child attended a Lutheran Church with his brother.  At age 15 he had a life altering experience at the Billy Graham New York Crusade which set him on the road to becoming a lay pastor in the Presbyterian Church and then a missionary-teacher in Papua New Guinea.  While there he became one of a very few American-Australian public servants with the Department of Education as headmaster of a rural school in a mountainous area where there was no electric power, no running water, or medical care. After a brief break to do graduate studies in International Development Education at the University of Pittsburgh he returned to PNG to train teachers at the PNG University Teachers’ College.

After 12 years in PNG Ken and his first family moved to Pennsylvania where he became a financial services representative.  Because of his developing world experience he took an interest in Sir John Templeton’s financial work and encouraged people to learn about and invest in developing countries.  In 1997 Ken got the opportunity to renew his relationship with the developing world by going to China for 10 weeks for the DuBois Pennsylvania Business College.  He returned to China three more times in 1998 and 1999, the last time to help establish a relationship for Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh.  He did this because his financial service business allowed for enormous flexibility of scheduling and because of Ken’s love for the developing world.  It was in China in 1997 that Ken made acquaintance with Ying, his wife who would unbeknownst to him at the time get a scholarship to study at the University of Guelph, Ontario in 1999.

Making contact with Ying in Canada was easy from northwestern Pennsylvania and the two became reacquainted and married at St James Anglican Church in Guelph, later attending St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Fort Erie where both became citizens of Canada.

After moving to Houston, Texas for six years Ken and Ying moved back to Fort Erie in 2017 where Ken, now once again connected to St. Paul’s in Fort Erie went on to lead monthly services at St. John’s Anglican Church in Stevensville, Ontario before moving to East Amherst in 2019.  Ken remains in the financial services business and Ying is a Nurse Practitioner in the area.
