Welcoming the Ziccardis!
Palisades is delighted to welcome our Interim Pastor team, Rosalind and Gary Ziccardi.
Gary came from Cleveland, OH, and Rosalind’s family made many Navy moves before settling in Coronado, CA. After they met in a Bible study, they married at First Presbyterian Church, San Diego, and went to Princeton Theological Seminary. They were each ordained to serve churches in the San Francisco Bay area, where their sons, Andrew and Benjamin, were born. Gary joined the military as an Air Force Chaplain, and the family moved ten times with duty stations around the US and in Italy, England, Qatar, Germany, and Japan. Throughout those years, Rosalind served in churches, para-church organizations, and chapel communities while writing a theological novel, Sealed and Delivered. Chaplain, Colonel Gary Ziccardi retired from active duty in 2016, and they settled in Coronado.
Before coming to Palisades Presbyterian, Gary served as Interim at Faith Presbyterian Church and Rosalind served as Interim at First Presbyterian Church of El Cajon. Andrew is an Army Captain, currently serving in South Sudan. Ben is an entrepreneur living in Atlanta, GA.
The Ziccardis golf, walk and run along the bay and ocean, play guitar and sing, throw a round of disc-golf, and read, among other things. They love Italian food and live theater. They have a cat named Sheba, an “Okinawan short-tail special.”
They love God, God’s people, their family, and life. Rejoicing to be part of the Palisades Presbyterian Church family serving as Interim/Transitional Ministry Specialists, they affirm with the Apostle Paul:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ (Philippians in 1:2-6).
