Calling our New Clergy Partner

The Vestry has begun the process of finding the next Rector of St. James. Working with the Diocesan Transition Minister, Lynn Bates, since the end of June the required preparation has been completed.  Next, the Vestry will select an Interim Minister from among those meeting the requirements to serve for the period until the final selection of the new Rector.  It is important for members of the Parish to understand that the process we have undertaken, in close partnership with the Diocese of Vermont, involves deeply spiritual elements as well as the steps required to identify and select a Rector.  Please follow this link to a Letter from the Vestry describing the steps of the Ministry Discernment process.



Welcome to St. James Episcopal Church. Established on the green in Woodstock, Vermont in 1827, St. James is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont, a part of the world-wide Anglican Communion.
