Rev. David Laquintano
Born and raised in Clarks Summit, PA, Rev. David Laquintano earned degrees locally from Eastern University in St. Davids and Eastern Baptist Seminary in Wynnewood. He married Christine and the couple settled in Bridgeton, NJ, where he served as a Baptist minister. Over time, he gravitated towards the Episcopal Church. He served parishes in northeast Philadelphia, Kingston, and Wyomissing, PA, before ending up in Ocean City, NJ, in February 1999. For nearly 15 years, his family called Ocean City home while serving Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. He retired from there in 2013. Although the seashore environment is greatly missed, Fr. David and his wife, Christine, have been enjoying a new chapter in their lives residing in Swarthmore, PA. The couple raised three boys: Timothy, David and Stephen, and enjoy spending time with their grandchildren.
Currently, Fr. David serves both St. Martin's Church, Radnor and Christ Church, Ithan on an interim basis. His celebration of Sunday's Holy Eucharist worship rotates between the churches weekly. In addition, he leads a midweek noonday prayer service on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month.
Deborah B. Parker
Director of Christian Formation
Deb started at St. Martin's in February of 2017 after moving from Ohio to join her husband, Steve. She brings extensive experience from both business and religious workplaces.

Sherrill E. Rowland
Sherrill joined the St. Martin’s staff in 2016, after overseeing a large construction project and serving as interim Property Manager at St. David’s Episcopal Church. Prior to her serving on church staffs, Sherrill’s career was primarily focused on the operations side of firms offering retirement plan communications, recordkeeping and investment services.
St. Martin’s buildings and grounds have a great history: the first service in the Church was held on August 14, 1881; and portions of Bolingbroke, the estate house that houses a childcare facility on the top floors and event space on the first floor, date back to the early 1700’s. Sherrill finds having responsibility for the Church’s property a blessing with lots of challenges.
Maggie joined St. Martin's staff in August of 2014. She feels very valued in being able to put her technical abilities and social skills to good use in this role as Parish Administrator. She manages the weekly and seasonal publications, along with calendar maintenance, website updates, social media posts, and daily office routines. In her spare time, she likes to volunteer, spend time with her two grown daughters, workout, crochet, and care for her two dogs.
