St. James's Days

For a brief period when I was Rector at St. James's, Cambridge, MA there were six assisting priests. They each had "day jobs", and were not salaried by St. James's.

Here they are from left to right.

The Revd. Dr Ian Douglas,then a Professor at Episcopal Divinity School, and soon to be Bishop of Connecticut.

The Revd. Dr. Robert K Massie, noted environmentalist and worker for God's justice - still at St. James's.

The Revd. Christine Marie. Then a student at Episcopal Divinity School (whilst her husband was studying at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government). We've lost touch.

The Revd. Dr. Andrew McGowan, then a Professor at Episcopal Divinity School, now the head honcho at Trinity College, University of Melbourne, Australia.

The Revd. Dr. Judy Gay, former missionary to Liberia and Lesotho, and now retired.. (One of the first two women to be ordained in Lesotho, the other being a Lesothan). - still at St. James's,

The Revd. Bruce Bryant-Scott, then on Sabbatical leave at Harvard Divinity School, now back in parish ministry in British Columbia.

They are an extra-ordinarily bright and talented group, and I was blessed to be able to share in ministry with them.
