Thanks to generous support of the GiFT campaign by parishioners, we have been able to appoint an Associate Priest at Saint James’. We are all the more fortunate that this person is Rev Andrea Thomas, who brings to the task a wide background of experience, thorough familiarity with the Manotick region, personal dynamism, and a fine sense of humour.
Rev Andrea’s first Sunday with us was May 5, and the parish welcomed her with enthusiasm. Following the 10 am service we met in Tomkins Hall for lunch and a cake cutting ceremony. All of us at Saint James’ look forward to having Andrea with us as we grow and serve in God’s love.
