Constellation Covenant

On June 1, 2024, Calvary Church, Underhill and St. James Church, Essex Junction  entered into a constellation agreement over a period of 19 months for exploration of the constellation concept in practice. Both parishes maintain their respective identities and Vestries. The Rev. Kim Hardy will continue to serve as Rector of St. James and begins serving as Priest-in-Charge of Calvary. This agreement was approved by Bishop Shannon MacVean-Brown and lasts through December 2025.


The time of exploration will include common activities and times of worship meant to deepen the spiritual lives of both parishes and enrich ministry possibilities in the Diocese of Vermont. We are grateful for the process in which parishioners and Vestry members took part to bring us to this point. We pray for God’s blessing on this time of exploration and growth together.
