In a packed church on the evening of Monday 4th March we welcomed Rev. James McDonald as he was licensed by Bishop Alan and installed by Archdeacon Jonathan as Team Vicar in the Benefice of Langelei with responsibility for All Saints. In attendance were many representatives of the community including Mayor of Dacorum Councillor Rosie Sutton, Kings Langley School head Gary Lewis, members of clergy from the deanery, the village and from Father James’ previous parishes, members of All Saints and other Hemel Hempstead Deanery churches, and well wishers from near and far. James and Rachel are looking forward to getting to know the parish and making connections in the community! Find out a bit more about Father James here.
