Rev. Iain joined St. Peter’s as rector in July 2020. His road to priesthood came through a journey with several twists and turns along the way.
Iain came of age in the world of Post Vatican II Roman Catholicism, where he learned to embrace the future, but also to respect the past. He was shaped by this great aggiornamento, learning to use new and more accessible forms to ancient words and practices.
Iain embraces God's way of love where spiritual practice and social action work together to transform the church and the world into God's realm of justice.
Before being called as a rector, Iain served as an associate for liturgy at Grace Cathedral, and as associate rector at Christ Church, Lake Oswego.
He has degrees from Oregon State University, University of Notre Dame, and Harvard Divinity School; and a certificate in Anglican Studies from the Church Divinity School of the Pacific.
He loves his coffee, his two sassy cats, and being outdoors whenever he can.
