The Rev. Dr. Brian Jemmott
On August 13, 2006, the Rev. Brian Anthony Jemmott, a native of Trinidad & Tobago, W. I., assumed rectorship. Fr. Brian, as he is affectionately called, has been in the Diocese of Atlanta since April 1997, when he moved here from the Diocese of Chicago, to become Chaplain/Director, at the Absalom Jones Student Center & Chapel. Fr. Brian also previously served as Vicar at St. Timothy’s, also in the Diocese of Atlanta, before coming to Holy Cross. In May 2009, Fr. Brian was awarded the Doctor of Ministry degree, with an emphasis on Multiculturalism, from the Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, Massachusetts. He has brought to the parish a great deal of energy and dynamism, new and innovative ways of engaging ministry in the now, practicing both traditional and contemporary forms of the liturgy. Under his leadership, a new day has dawned at the Church of the Holy Cross.
