On Sunday, March 10, a letter from the Right Reverend John Chapman was read at the end of the worship services indicating that he is appointing The Reverend Andrea Thomas, B.Th., as our new Associate Priest beginning May 1st . In his letter Bishop Chapman states,
“Andrea was ordained in this diocese in 1999, and has served the parishes of St. Thomas, Stittsville, St. Helen’s, Orleans, the Parish of Metcalfe, Greely, and Vernon and, since 2009, Trinity Church, Bank Street. Andrea is very supportive of diocesan ministries having served in several capacities as Spiritual Director of Challenge, Regional Dean of Carleton deanery, and a consultant on the Parish Growth and Renewal Working Group, working alongside your Incumbent.
Andrea is a skilled pastor and I know she will quickly gain your trust and love. She brings numerous pastoral skills and a commitment to work with your Incumbent for the life and ministry of St. James.”
As a parish we look forward to welcoming Andrea and getting to know her and the gifts of ministry she has to share.
