About Me

The Rev. Noah Van Niel
 Noah Headshot

I am an Episcopal priest currently serving as the Assistant Rector at St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, MA. Previously I have served in various capacities at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Newton, MA (where I had been raised in the faith), St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Cambridge and Christ Church in the City of Boston (Old North). I have also worked at Church of the Holy Trinity in Philadelphia, PA and served as a leader of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts anti-violence campaign, B-PEACE. I’m a graduate of Harvard College where I graduated with a degree in English Literature and was a starter on the varsity football team. After college I spent a few years pursuing a career as an opera singer (another great love of mine) before following God’s call to the priesthood and studying for my MDiv at Harvard Divinity School.

Along for all of these twists and turns was my beloved wife Melinda and recent additions to our life include our sons Vincent and Arthur.
