From The Search Committee and Vestry
Dear Fellow Parishioners,
It is our great pleasure to announce that The Rev. Elsa H. Worth will join us as the next rector of St. James. Elsa comes to us from Christ Episcopal Church, Bethany, CT. We have chosen a deeply spiritual leader with sound and practical experience in parish life to lead us forward in the spirit inspired next chapter of the St. James community.
Our gratitude and thanks to the Search Committee, under the leadership of Jim Putnam and Eleanor Vander Haegen, for all their hard work providing the Vestry with three well qualified finalist candidates.
The Worths will move to Keene in August and Elsa’s first Sunday with us will be September 25.
Let us rejoice!

We are fortunate to have a wonderful Interim Rector, Rev. Caroline Hines, who is committed to being with us through the process, however long it takes, and has previous experience working with other congregations in this role.
