Susan Ironside 2019.jpg

The Rev. Susan R. Ironside (she / her)


Mother Susan came to Grace in the fall of 2018. She previously served as Rector of the Church of St. John on the Mountain in Bernardsville in the Diocese of New Jersey as well as in parishes in Chatham as a seminarian and in Westfield as a curate. She is a graduate of The General Theological Seminary in Manhattan, where she was the recipient the Bishop of Newark Preaching Prize. She has served on various committees in the Diocese of New Jersey including the Bishop’s Advisory Committee on Liturgy.  She currently serves as a faculty member for the Episcopal Preaching Foundation, an organization that supports excellence in preaching in the Episcopal Church.   She is passionate about preaching, and works with preachers around the country in an on-line mentoring project.  Prior to seminary, Susan had a career as a Registered Nurse, working with adults in crisis, so pastoral care has an important place in her life and schedule.  

Susan shares her life with her husband, Dr. Andrew Moore and their two children, Nathan and Caroline Ironside Moore, as well as their over-indulged dogs. Andrew is the Choir Master and Organist at Christ Church in Short Hills and is the Chair of the Music Department at The Pingry School. The Ironside-Moore family loves food and tries to eat together whenever possible (always a challenge for any busy family!) and a few times a year they like to disappear to play at the beach. An enthusiastic lover of Broadway musicals, and a fan of a strange assortment of music, you will occasionally hear music coming from the Rector’s office, or you may catch her singing in her car.
