+Priest Chris Williamson

+archPriest Jacob Myers

Our founding priest and pastor, Archpriest Jacob Myers, was taken from our midst by a sudden devastating illness. He reposed in the Lord on Wednesday, January 16, 2013. May His Memory be Eternal. 

 

+Priest Chris Williamson 

The Priest Christopher was originally the Assistant Priest at St John with both Fr Jacob, as well as Fr Tom. Fr Christopher reposed in March and on March 6, 2018 his funeral was held. The church was full of family, clergy, and friends, making evident the wide impact that Fr. Chris made on all of us over his long service in the Priesthood. He was a humble example of what life in Christ should be, and although we celebrate and proclaim the hope of the Resurrection, he will be missed.

Memory Eternal!
