The Bishop of Fredericton, David Edwards, has announced that a new reverend has been appointed to serve as rector for St. Stephen parish. Reverend Julian Pillay is expected to arrive within the next few months as his situation allows. He will be joined by his wife, Michelle, and their son, Julian.

Reverend Pillay was ordained at the Church of England in South Africa in 2003, and he now serves as rector of the Emmanuel Church in Phoenix, South Africa. He has a Bachelor of Theology degree and is now enrolled in a post-graduate theology program at South African Theological College. He previously founded Shepherds Heart, a para-church ministry reaching the poor and vulnerable, especially the youth and children, in his community.
