Br. Chris Thompson, HoSM

An ordained priest for 38 years, Chris has served as a parish priest and a Reserve US Air Force Chaplain for 22 years. Order has always been a part of his life and Chris has searched for a community that would center him. Prior to finding HoSM, he worked with the State of West Virginia’s Department of Veterans Assistance as the Director for Suicide Prevention and Education. Once Chris located the Community, it found his longing. 

Br. Jeffrey Neal Stevenson, HoSM

On May 14, 2017, at the principal Sunday Eucharist of Saint James’ Episcopal Church, Warrenton, Jeffrey Neal Stevenson became the newest member of the HoSM. Br. Jeffrey made his vows in front of the entire congregation and the Suffragan Bishop of Virginia, the Rt. Rev’d Susan E. Goff. We are grateful for Br. Jeffrey’s call to this ministry, to The Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, Virginia Theological Seminary and to St. James’ Church for recognizing his calling in such a public way. Please join us in praying for our new brother in his call.
