The parish of Saint James the Apostle is a part of the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa, presided over by the Bishop of Ottawa. Our Associate Priest is Rev Andrea Thomas.  She is advised by the Corporation,  including the churchwardens.  Parish Council, a larger body made up largely of representatives from parish organizations, recommends planning and policy initiatives and acts as a clearinghouse for matters involving several parish groups.  Vestry is a body made up of all parishioners over the age of 16; it meets annually (or more frequently if necessary) to vote on major parish items such as the budget and substantial parish initiatives.
