The parish of Saint James the Apostle is a part of the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa, presided over by the Bishop of Ottawa. Our Interim Priest is The Rt.  Reverend Peter R. Coffin.  He is advised by the Corporation,  including the churchwardens regarding all financial matters of the parish.  Parish Council, a larger body made up largely of representatives from parish organizations, help the incumbent develop policy initiatives and plan programming 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.I
