About our preacher...
Br. James Koester, SSJE was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. He studied History and English Literature at Trent University (Peterborough, ON) and received a Master’s of Divinity from Trinity College (Toronto, ON). Before arriving at SSJE, he served as a parish priest in the Diocese of British Columbia. James was life-professed in our community in 1995 and has since served as Superior, the Senior Brother at Emery House, and Community Archivist. Br. James enjoys family history, reading mysteries, and vegetable gardening. He has combined his love of long-distance walking and early British History by walking both the St. Cuthbert’s Way and the Hadrian’s Wall Path. He is currently compiling a list of every man who has tested a vocation at SSJE and working on a history of the Society’s part in introducing the Holy Week rites in English to North American Anglicans and Episcopalians.
