Following last year's merger, new church has a new priest

From Salem Mass-

As the first priest in charge at All Saints Episcopal Church of the North Shore, the Rev. Marya DeCarlen has a lot on her plate.

She has taken the reins of a new church, formed by the merger a year ago of Calvary Episcopal in Danvers and St. Paul’s Episcopal in Peabody. Both churches date back more than 100 years but, faced with smaller memberships, decided to consolidate to cut costs, reduce overhead and grow membership.

They came together in the former Calvary church at Cherry and Holten streets, and as time has passed, DeCarlen said members no longer talk about belonging to their former churches.
