Rev. Sabune is no stranger to the MPS program and to the New York State correctional system. A graduate of Vassar College (BA) and Union Theological Seminary in New York (M.Div), he was ordained to the Episcopal priesthood in 1981. He served in ministry in several parishes in New York and as a Grants Officer for the Global South at Trinity Wall Street and Dean of Trinity and St. Philip’s Cathedral in Newark, NJ before being called as Vicar for Community Ministry at St. James’ Episcopal Church in New York City. In 2004, he left St. James to become Dr. Hunt’s successor as the Protestant Chaplain at Sing Sing, where he served for 5 years. He left Sing Sing to head up the Africa Partnership Officer for the Episcopal Church USA, but then returned to corrections where he has served as Liaison for Reentry for the New York Department of Corrections and Community Service (NYDCCS) for the past several years.
