The St. David’s community has dared to dream of a full-time rector who lives and works among us on San Juan Island, providing constancy of pastoral care and growing our membership. As we all know, housing costs and availability are one of the greatest barriers to newcomers in our community. Gryphon Hall was once a residence for our priests and their families; with renovation, it could once again be a comfortable and convenient abode for a rector. If we can provide housing, our community will be able to sustain a full-time priest’s salary and benefits with very little increase to annual pledging.
The vestry looks forward to sharing architectural plans for the remodel with the congregation. Details of the capital campaign will be announced in the coming weeks.
