What’s Happening Around the Parish
Father Jim Friedrich
for the month of September
Our supply priest for September, Fr. Jim Friedrich, is a priest of 40 years with many talents and experiences. A life-long Episcopalian, his first church was a backyard movie theater and Sunday School where his father (also a priest) showed his productions of biblical films to neighborhood children during World War II. Fr. Jim attended Episcopal schools in Los Angeles, attended Stanford, majoring in history and literature. He then went to the Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Fr. Jim was ordained a deacon in Los Angeles in 1969 and to the priesthood in 1970.
Fr. Jim came to Puget Sound in 1995 and has done both teaching and creative liturgy with many parishes in the diocese. He has served as a supply priest with us at St. Alban’s in the past. He is married to the Rev. Karen Haig, associate priest at St. Thomas, Medina. They live on Bainbridge Island. Fr. Jim is an avid backpacker, runner and hiker. He walked the 500-mile Camino de Santiago this spring.
Fr. Jim is a filmmaker, writer, musician, storyteller, teacher and has led retreats and wilderness encounters. He has made videos used widely throughout the church, and teaches cinema and theology at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. Fr.
