Christian Education at St. James
After 22 years in parish ministry, I spent the next ten years as a chaplain and teacher in a school setting. Returning to St. James has been a pure blessing. In addition to being the Senior Associate at the church, I am the Day School Chaplain. You will find me walking the halls of the day school, and sometimes in the Christian Education classroom assisting our Christian Education Teacher. You’ll see me planting flowers and herbs in our gardens with the children, and in chapel.
Throughout the year, the school has different outreach programs that have involved collecting canned goods for the hungry, collecting school supplies for schools that may have less resources than we do, and finding ways to help others. I find my job to be a wonderful gift from God. To be able to see these wonderful children, day after day, is a true joy.
