Clergy and Staff

Visiting Vicars: TBA

After 34 years of faithful ministry in the Episcopal Church, our appreciated and much loved vicar, Father Dennis Campbell, has taken  well-deserved retirement.

In lieu of this, St. James’ will be the host of several visiting clergy until another vicar is called to the ministry of St. James’. The visiting clergy will only be available on the Sundays they serve. If there are any questions of a pastoral nature, about church business, or otherwise please feel welcome to contact the Vestry. >> Email the Vestry
