The Rev James Forrest RIP

Jamie Forrest went home to be with His Lord this morning at 10:30 AM. He had a long and fruitful ministry in the Diocese of Pittsburgh serving his last 16 years at St. David's. I have known Jamie for over 25 years and we served on staff at St. David's for the first 2.5 years of my tenure as senior pastor and rector with lots of joy together. He was a great friend and a wonderful mentor.

There will be two memorial services in greater Pittsburgh - the first next Saturday 9/10 at Church of the Ascension Oakland at 2:00 PM with interment to follow in the Ascension columbarium and the second Monday 9/12 at St David's Anglican Church Peters Twp at 7 PM with Archbishop Duncan presiding.

Please continue to pray for his dear wife Sharon and the family.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory.


  1. Dave -- I'm passing the word along, with such sadness, to folks on our side of the stream. I'll see you Monday evening. Unfortunately I have a wedding Saturday afternoon.

    Do you know: is the old House of Prayer/Avalon address still a good one for cards and notes to Sharon?
