Ordained in 1987, The Rev. Jim Morrison has found great joy as serving as a priest for the past 34 years. After receiving a Masters in Divinity at University of St. Mary of the Lake he served four Roman Catholic Parishes in the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux. Working side by side with the lay leaders in these communities he gathered the youth, called forth the young adults, journeyed on missions, opened educational opportunities for offenders, nurtured vocations, cried, laughed and celebrated God’s grace together. Led by the Spirit of God to the Episcopal Church, he entered this communion in 2011. After being accepted as a candidate of the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana, he earned a degree in Anglican Studies from the University of the South in Sewanee, TN. In 2013 I was received as a priest in the Diocese of Louisiana. Fr Jim served first at Trinity Episcopal Church in New Orleans as minister of Newcomers and Educational Formation. After being called as rector of St. Andrew’s Episcopal he moved further up the streetcar line to the Carrollton neighborhood. "Currently our community is growing and our parish is alive with laughter, bound together by grace, and enriched by worship, mission and inclusion". Click here to reach out to Fr Jim.
