Allan Warren, III Obituary

The Rev. Allan Bevier Warren, III, 15th rector of Church of the Advent, Boston, from 1999 to 2019, died in the evening of Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024, on the 51st anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. A resident of Marblehead since his retirement, he had been admitted to the Sawtelle Family Hospice House in Reading, three days earlier. Fr. Warren was born in Charlottesville, Virginia on January 14, 1947. After graduating from Princeton University and the General Theological Seminary in New York, he was ordained deacon in 1972 and priest in 1973. He served, first, in South Carolina at All Saints, Clinton and Epiphany, Laurens. From there, he was appointed curate of the Church of the Transfiguration, New York, 1974-1981. Subsequently, he served as Canon Pastor of the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity in Paris, France, 1981-84, then returned to the United States after being called as rector of Parish of the Good Shepherd, in Waban, Massachusetts, 1984-1990. He was assistant to the rector at the Church of the Advent, 1990-1993, then rector of Church of the Resurrection in New York City, 1993-1998. He returned to the Advent to serve as rector in 1999 and retired in 2018. He married Mary "Polly" Wilder in 1981; they enjoyed summering together in Southwest Harbour, Maine, until her death in 2007. He continued to spend his vacation time there until his health no longer permitted it. He was mentor to many young priests, as well as an inspiration to his numerous friends and parishioners, who will long remember his ebullient personality, resonant voice and faithful witness. A Solemn Requiem Mass will be held at the Church of the Advent, 30 Brimmer Street, Boston, on Saturday, April 6, at 11am.
