Bradley A. MacDonald
Brad is a lawyer in private practice. He enjoys fishing, hiking, birding and friendships. He has been a USSF adult and youth soccer referee for twenty years. He cherishes the love of his wife Barbara, their children and eight grandchildren.
Son of a railroad man, Brad grew up in a dozen cities and towns in the West and Midwest. He and Barbara met at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, married in 1972 and then spent over two years as Peace Corps volunteers and trainers in Tunisia. They moved to Boston for graduate programs, and have lived on Corey Hill since 1979. Brad has participated as a board member and advisor of several non-profit organization and was an elected Brookline Town Meeting member for nine years.
The MacDonald family began attending All Saints Parish in 1990, drawn by the outstanding music program led by Donald Teeters and Keith Glavash. The Parish was in a period of transition and discernment. As the Parish found its way, Brad found inspiration and a spiritual compass by participating in the life of this invigorating and stimulating community. Brad’s daughters Helen and Cora sang in Schola, Barbara joined the choir and their son Daniel’s ordination to the Episcopal Priesthood was sponsored by All Saints.
Brad’s path at All Saints began with confirmation, then Vestry and Junior Warden in the 1990’s, followed by a number of committees: welcome, auction, budget, property, facility use and the 2014 rectory renovation. Elected Senior Warden in 2018, he joined the Rector and an outstanding team of officers and Vestry members working to enhance our life together as a spiritual community. Brad is grateful to be a part of the caring, welcoming and inspiring cloud of witnesses that defines All Saints Parish.
