The Reverend Father Tom Tirman OSM – Superior
Father Tom was ordained a priest in 1990, and he has served the Church in many different capacities, yet always as a parish priest.

Since that time, as conservative Anglicanism has grown, he has served as a priest in Bolivia, CANA, and as a Network Leader in the Anglican Mission before becoming the Superior of the OSM, first in the Diocese of the Great Lakes and now in the Diocese of Quincy in the Anglican Church of North America.
