Ordained to the Sacred Priesthood

We are pleased to announce the Ordination of Rev. James Spencer on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017.

The following is an excerpt from the recent Gazette Article.


Let your priests, LORD God, be clothed with salvation… 2 Chronicles 6:41

The Anglican Diocese of Central Newfoundland, and the Parish of Burin, congratulate The Rev’d James D. Spencer who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood by the Right Reverend John E. Watton Bishop of Central Newfoundland, at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Burin on the 18th of October, where he celebrated his first Eucharist among family and friends. Rev. James is now licensed as Priest-in-Charge in the Parish of Burin where he has been serving as a Deacon since the spring. Our prayers go with James as he ministers now as Rector of the Parish of Burin, and for his wife Stellar, and children Isabelle and Simon, in this new stage of their family’s ministry.

Rev. James is the youngest son of The Rev’d George and Maisie Spencer of Gander. Rev’d George, who is now retired at the age of 86, stated both his pleasure at James’ answering God’s call to ministry and his pride in having James follow in his footsteps. James graduated with honours from Queen’s Theological College in St. John’s in April and ordained as a Deacon on April 29th during the Annual Diocesan Synod, held this year on the Burin Peninsula.
