Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum;
(I announce to you a great joy…we have a Rector!)
The Wardens, Vestry and Search Committee of Saint James’ Episcopal Church of Texarkana are very pleased to announce that the Very Reverend David J.A. Halt has accepted a call to serve as the next Rector of Saint James’ Episcopal Church Texarkana.
Fr. Dave comes to us from the parish of St. Matthews, in Bloomington, Illinois, where he has served faithfully as Rector for the last ten years.
Please see below for a short introductory note from Fr. Dave, which includes some biographical information about him and his family.
We anticipate that Fr. Dave’s first Sunday in the pulpit at Saint James’ will be August 2, 2020.
Please say a prayer for the Halts as they begin the process of saying "see you later" to their friends and parish family, for their safe travels, and one for the people of St. Matthews, as they begin the difficult process we are now completing.
We will provide you with details of opportunities to meet Fr. Halt and family in the near future, once they are worked out.
