New Rector Search

March 2021 Update

The Vestry of St. James’ Episcopal Church in Leesburg met in spiritual retreat on Saturday, February 27, and through prayers and guidance by the Holy Spirit have elected an 11-member New Rector Search Committee. 


The members of the Search Committee are:  Kim Carren, Stacy Cleveland, Paul Faust, Mary Frances Forcier, Kathleen Greenough, Joy Griffith, Ed Hatrick, Worth Hawes, Michelle Jones, Jen Reichard, and Rachelle Schroeder. 


Under the guidance and direction of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, this committee is charged by The Vestry, Wardens, and Officers of St. James’ Episcopal Church in Leesburg to search for one candidate for rector to be presented to the vestry for their consideration and eventual vote. 


The vestry will then extend the call to the new rector and finalize the contractual arrangements. 


The Reverend Sarah Brockenbrough, the Canon for Transitions for the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, will be meeting with both the Vestry and then the Rector Search Committee, respectively, before we can officially begin to launch our search process. She will be meeting with these bodies in March.
