At Holy Apostles, we believe in the priesthood of all believers. This means that all baptized members of Christ’s Church have an active role to play in the community of faith.
The leadership of this church includes the bishop, the Rt. Rev. Daniel Gutierrez, who leads the Episcopal Church in our diocese (which includes Philadelphia & the surrounding region). Our rector, the Rev. James Stambaugh, is the bishop’s sacramental delegate, and the person who has been chosen to be a sign of the worship and ministry that is shared by all members of the parish. Further, the parish is led by a council of baptized Christians called the vestry.
