Dear People of Saints James and Andrew,
It is with great joy that I write to share Jason A. Burns, who grew up at former St. Andrew's and then transitioned to former St. James in late 2012, will be ordained to the sacred order of deacons on March 7, 2020 at 11 a.m. at All Saints in South Hadley. Jason graduated from the Province 1 School for Deacons in 2019, and has spent time serving St. John's in Northampton and St. Philip's in Easthampton.
Let's all journey to All Saints in South Hadley to celebrate this sacred moment for Jason, Kevin Antonio Smallwood, and for the whole Church.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Heather J. Blais,
By the Grace of God
and the consent of the people
The Rt. Rev. Douglas J. Fisher
