With great sadness, we share that Founding Rector and Headmaster, The Reverend Canon Stephen B. Swann, died earlier this evening. He was surrounded by the love and care of his family. At this time, the family requests your support through prayer.
Tomorrow morning, we will gather as a school community on both campuses in prayer and thanksgiving for the life of our beloved Founder. We will offer the following prayer to God whose love and care for Father Swann has been a true blessing his whole life.
Almighty and loving God, we commend to your eternal rest our dear priest and ESD Founder, Father Swann. His vision and dedication have enabled ESD to be a community where Christ's light shines and brings forth healing in the world. Be with the Swann family as they mourn and guide us in our care for them and for one another during this sad time. All this we pray in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Please know that further information will be shared in the days ahead.
