Palmer Trinity School has welcomed the Reverend Dr. Mary Ellen Cassini as its new chaplain.
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome the Reverend Dr. Mary Ellen Cassini to our faculty at Palmer Trinity School,” said Patrick H. F. Roberts, head of school. “She is highly esteemed and has decades of experience working in the Episcopal educational system. We are confident she will be a tremendous asset in both her administrative and pastoral roles.”
Cassini joins Palmer Trinity with over 35 years of experience in education as a teacher and an administrator. After teaching English, history and drama for 20 years, she became the head of middle school at Saint Andrew’s School in Boca Raton.
After her seven-year tenure, Cassini completed a year of Anglican Studies and was ordained to the deaconate in 2006 and to the priesthood in 2007. She returned to Saint Andrew’s in 2005 where she served as chaplain for an additional seven years.
Following her time at Saint Andrew’s, Cassini became the associate rector at St. Mark’s Church and School in Fort Lauderdale where she served in pastoral work, outreach and mission experiences. Soon after, she returned to education and became the head of school at St. Christopher’s Montessori Church and School.
Cassini earned her Bachelor of Arts in History, with a secondary teaching certificate from Barry University. She later earned a Master of Arts degree in English and a Doctorate of Ministry also from Barry University.
