CLERGY AND STAFF
I am delighted to have been called as Rector of this dynamic, loving and growing Episcopal parish, affectionately known as St. James, and I look forward to seeing where God will lead us together. It is my intention to build upon the previous leadership in proclaiming the good news and the joy found in the love of Christ.
Whether you are just beginning your faith walk, or deepening a mature relationship with God, there is a place for you here and I invite you to join us.
In His Joy,
De Freeman +
