As ministers, N.J. couples share their lives and calling
By:Tatiana Schlossberg / The Record
At a wedding last week at Church of the Atonement in Tenafly, the bride and groom were not the only couple at the altar.
As the Rev. Lynne Weber celebrated the rite, she was assisted by the rector from All Saints Episcopal Church in Leonia — her husband, the Rev. Dean Weber.
"We often help each other and support with pastoral services, and bigger events like funerals and weddings," Lynne Weber said.
The Webers are part of a small group of couples who are both ministers. The Rev. Canon Gregory A. Jacobs, canon to the ordinary in the Archdiocese [sic] of Newark, said that there is one other such couple in the diocese, the Rev. Chuck Hatfield and the Rev. Adele Hatfield in Mountain Lakes.
