In 2022, he was a recipient of the Griffin Fellowship and partook in ministry formation in the Holy Land at St. George’s College. Fr. Garron is passionate about a number of topics, but is especially passionate about Death & Dying, Christian Formation, and the Liturgy of the Church; especially the Rite of Reconciliation.

Fr. Garron said he believes that the Episcopal Church has a rich tradition that so many are finding for the first time. He finds it important to explore deeply what it means to be a Christian, especially within the Anglican tradition.

Fr. Garron is also a member of the Guild of All Souls, an At-Large member of the Provincial Council of the Society of Catholic Priests, and a founding member of Order of Christ the Saviour. He also spends quite a bit of his time volunteering for Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum in St Louis. Fr. Garron is married to his college sweetheart, Nathalia Baum, and together they have a long-haired mini dachshund, Maggie.

Fr. Garron and the people of the Episcopal Parish of Alton, invite you to join them for Sunday services at one of their two worship sites; St. Paul’s Church, located in downtown Alton on the corner of Market and Third Streets, and Trinity Chapel located on State Street in North Alton. Trinity Chapel meets at 8:15 a.m. and St Paul’s meets at 10:30 a.m.
