A year working but out of ministry, in September of 2002, Eric received a call from Barbara Brill, the past accountant from Immaculate Conception Church and a member of a Presbyterian Church in Yonkers, NY. She said that the church was in need of a minister on a Sunday morning. She convinced Eric that he needed to participate and get back involved. Eric preached that Sunday for the first time in two years. Other opportunities soon presented themselves. Couples came to him to be married, and individuals came for spiritual direction and counseling. Then came Eastchester Community Church, 11 Woodlot Road, Eastchester, N.Y. Sixteen years later -the rest is, as they say, history.
Eric is now married to Donna and together have a son, Arthur. They reside in Glen Cove, NY. Donna is the Executive Director of Lincoln Academy, a not for profit early childhood program housed on the property of Eastchester Church which is now celebrating over 10 years of care and education.
