Fr Max Kramer appointed new Keble Chaplain

The College is happy to announce that the Revd Fr Max Kramer will be taking over the Chaplaincy from Acting Chaplain the Revd Fr Darren McFarland from Michaelmas 2022.

Fr Max grew up in Northumberland before coming South to study Classics in Oxford. He has ministered in St John’s College, Cambridge and a range of Parishes, with a particular focus on pastoral work and engagement with students and young adults. Most recently he has been Precentor of Canterbury Cathedral, responsible for the Cathedral’s worship, and with a key role in the Cathedral’s welfare provision. At Canterbury he also founded and led ‘Sacred Space,’ offering hospitality, pastoral care, friendship, and worship to local students and young adults.

Alongside his priestly ministry, Fr Max has held a number of teaching posts at the Universities of Cambridge and Kent, where he taught Greek, Hebrew, Latin, and Classical and Biblical Literature. His research interests are in the Jewish-Greek Literature of the Hellenistic period.
