Paul Moore News


The Right Reverend Paul Moore, Jr. (November 15, 1919 - May 1, 2003) was a bishop of the Episcopal Church and served as the 13th Bishop of New York. During his lifetime, he was perhaps the best known Episcopal clergyman in the United States, and among the best known Christian clergy in any denomination.

Paul Moore, Jr., was a graduate of St. Paul's School and Yale University, where, like his father before him and an older brother, he was a member of Wolf's Head Society. He had been president of the Berkeley Association, the Episcopal student group, and a Boy Scout leader at Yale. He was a member of one of America's richest families.

Moore joined the Marine Corps in 1941. He was a highly decorated Marine Corps captain, a veteran of the Guadalcanal Campaign during World War II earning the Navy Cross, a Silver Star and a Purple Heart. Returning home after the War, Moore was ordained in 1949 after graduating from the General Theological Seminary in New York City. He would later be a trustee at Yale and General Theological Seminary.
