Rector and Staff

The Reverend Hays "Hank" Junkin, Interim Rector

Fr. Hank was called by the Vestry in the summer of 2011 to serve as interim rector of Church of Our Saviour. He brings with him over 30 years of experience in parish ministry and education in interim ministry training.


A graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary, Fr Hank has served in the Diocese of New Hampshire as a six-year member, and former president, of the Standing Committee. He has also served as rector of St. Andrew’s, Hopkinton; priest-in-charge at St. James, Laconia; and interim priest at Church of the Holy Spirit in Plymouth.  




Valerie Hungerford, Parish Administrator

Valerie has been a member of Church of Our Saviour since 1975 and in June 2011 celebrated 25 years as our Parish Administrator. Under the supervision of the rector, Valerie manages the church office and its daily operation. She maintains membership information, manages the scheduling of various activities, and performs numerous "behind the scenes" administrative tasks. She is the cheerful voice with the distinct accent at the other end of the phone and the person that keeps the church leadership, both clergy and lay, on track.




Anne Benoit, Church School Coordinator (Nursery - 5th Grade)
Anne Benoit is a second generation, and lifelong member of Church of Our Saviour. As such she possesses the unique perspective of having experienced the church school program as both a teacher and a student - the later being an experience she has in common with her three children. 

Debbie Donnelly, Journey to Adulthood Coordinator

Debbie has managed the Journey to Adulthood program at Church of Our Saviour since its debut here in 2002. An advocate for the program’s curriculum and philosophy, she also believes that faith is “caught” more than it’s “taught”, and she is very grateful for the adult leaders over the years who have generously shared their faith, time, and energy with our teens.
