AMBRIDGE, PA – December 12, 2014 – The Rev. Dr. Martha Giltinan died this morning in Boston at Massachusetts General Hospital after a yearlong battle with Leukemia. Throughout this year she has fought valiantly against the disease, but always with a deep trust in the Lord and without a fear of death. “Death has no dominion over me,” was her constant refrain during her treatment.
Martha has been a member of the Faculty of Trinity School for Ministry since 2005 teaching both Liturgy and Pastoral Theology. She was a priest in the Anglican Church of North America and served on the Liturgy and Common Worship Task Force which developed Texts for Common Prayer. Prior to her work at Trinity, she served in Parish ministry in the Boston area for nearly twenty years. “Martha has been a dear friend and a much-loved colleague,” remarked the Very Rev. Dr.Justyn Terry, Trinity’s Dean and President. “She was a great pastor and mentor to many of our students over the years and she will be deeply missed by the whole Trinity community.”
Martha is survived by her mother Carter, and brothers Thomas A., William, and Alexander. She is predeceased by her father Alexander.
Funeral arrangements are still coming together. The information will be posted herewhen it is available.
May she rest in peace.
