Paul J. Hartt attended New York University and earned a B. A. in Philosophy.  He next attended the "Great Books" program at the Graduate Institute at Saint John's College in Annapolis, Maryland, and worked in admissions at NYU.  While there, he married his wife Jeffrey, and they have been married thirteen years.  After discerning a call to the priesthood, Paul went on to receive a Master of Divinity degree from Berkeley Divinity School at Yale, and his son, Samuel, was born in New Haven.  Paul served as curate at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Mystic, Connecticut, and came to St. Peter's after serving six years as Rector of St. John's, Delhi, and Priest-in-Charge at St. Peter's, Hobart.  He currently serves as president of the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Albany.
