May 2022

The Vestry of Christ Episcopal Church in Covington, Louisiana is delighted to announce the call of the Reverend David Seth Donald as its next Rector.

Fr. Seth was installed as the 5th Rector of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Lake Charles, Louisiana in June of 2016. He is a native of Jennings, Louisiana and holds degrees from Rhodes College, BA; Centenary College, MBA; and The University of the South, M.Div. Prior to being called to ordained life, Fr. Seth had a business career with a Fortune 30 company. He enjoys travel, and any excuse to be outside – gardening, hiking, and fishing. He is an avid reader and a football fan.

He is married to Amy Parratt Donald, and they have three daughters: Mary Brooks, Eliza, and Mae. Mary Brooks is a student at Mississippi State University, and Eliza and Mae will be attending Christ Episcopal School. The family will move here this summer and Fr. Seth begins work here on August 15.

Many thanks to our search committee, listed below, for their hard work.
