Press Release: The Rev. Dr. Paul J. Carling Appointed Provisional Interim Chaplain

The Rev. Paul Carling

The Rev. Dr. Paul J. Carling has been appointed as Provisional Interim Chaplain at the Episcopal Church at Yale (ECY) and his first Sunday there will be September 14.  His primary work will be to provide pastoral and spiritual care for the students and to deepen their commitment to participating in God’s mission. The Rt. Rev. Ian T. Douglas, President of the Board of Governors, and the Rt. Rev. Laura J. Ahrens, bishop with oversight of university and college chaplains in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, will work with the members of the ECY Board of Trustees on issues of trust, leadership, and governance as they move forward. A permanent chaplain will be appointed later.  

Carling is an Episcopal priest currently serving as associate rector at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Fairfield, and will continue in that position. He is also a licensed clinical and developmental psychologist who has had a distinguished career in the field of mental health. Carling has degrees from the University of Pennsylvania – a B.A. in History; and M.S. Ed. in Social Science Education, and a Ph.D. in Clinical & Developmental Psychology – and an M. Div. from Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge MA. He was ordained to the priesthood in 2002 in Vermont where he served before coming to Connecticut in 2004.  His prior employment has included various professorships in the U.S. and U.K. He also has experience providing counseling services for students at two universities. Link here for full CV.

Paul Carling is married to Cherise A. Rowan, M.D., a neonatal pediatric cardiologist who is a clinical instructor at Yale University.

A Statement From the Episcopal Church at Yale

The Rev. Bruce M. Shipman, on his own initiative, has resigned as Priest-in-Charge of the Episcopal Church at Yale, effective immediately.

The Rt. Rev. Ian T. Douglas, President of the Board of Governors, and the Rt. Rev. Laura J. Ahrens, bishop with oversight of university and college chaplains in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, have accepted with sadness the resignation of the Rev. Bruce M. Shipman; and wish to thank him for his faithfulness, hard work, vision, and most especially his dedication to the students at Yale over the last fourteen months as Episcopal chaplain.

It is our belief that the dynamics between the Board of Governors and the Priest-in-Charge occasioned the resignation of the Rev. Shipman.  Bishops Douglas and Ahrens are dedicated to working with the Board on matters of governance and process so that the Episcopal Church at Yale can continue faithfully to serve students and Gods mission at Yale University.

In addition, The Episcopal Church at Yale, its Board of Governors, the Bishops of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, and the Rev. Bruce Shipman are all committed to a civil dialogue on difficult issues that divide peoples of this world and pledge ourselves to the prayerful and humble work of reconciliation and peace in our hurting and divided world.
