Parish Administrator: Gena Bean

Gena Bean comes to Church of Our Saviour with enthusiasm for the vision of love, justice, and care. 

Her history as the administrator/coordinator for a mindful meditation community organization gave her the skills needed to keep our office running smoothly during the week. On the weekends, she teaches meditation and records audio for the mindfulness radio station. Gena lives with her spouse and a sweet kitty in Cambridgeport. 

Music Director: Casey Hannan

Casey Hannan has dedicated much of his life to learning and teaching music and technology, earning master’s degrees in piano performance and statistics along the way. His latest endeavor is building a Hauptwerk Virtual Organ at Church of Our Saviour, merging his software skills with his love for organ playing. He is especially grateful to be part of a church community that not only has substantial technical expertise and encourages liturgical and musical experimentation but also places a strong emphasis on addressing justice issues.

During the week, he works as a software engineer and corporate trainer, while on Sundays, he directs music at Our Saviour. Despite his busy schedule, he still makes time to teach math to children. He resides in Belmont with his spouse and their phenomenal cat.
