The vestry is excited to announce that The Rev. Dr. Carol Jablonski will be serving as our Interim Rector and will officially begin on August 1st. She comes highly recommended by WNC’s Bishop José and Canon Augusta, and our vestry is confident she will be a great fit for our parish during this season of transition. The Rev. Dr. Jablonski’s bio is as follows.

St. James Episcopal Church in Hendersonville, NC is searching for a Director of Youth and Family Ministry who will, primarily, lead and love our youth into a relationship with Jesus. Additionally, this person will be the leader of faith formation activities at the church for adults, youth, and children. He or she must be an enthusiastic leader who thrives and enjoys working with children and youth. At the same time, this leader must have the creativity and intellect to organize adult formation programs.
