The Rev. Phillip A. Jackson was installed as vicar of Trinity Wall Street on Saturday, June 20, 2015.  The Rt. Rev. Claude Payne, former Bishop of the Diocese of Texas, preached. Bishop Payne ordained Fr. Jackson to the priesthood and has been a spiritual mentor to him for many years. Fr. Jackson was ordained on the Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, twenty years ago. Elements of the feast day, which falls on June 24, were incorporated into this service. Watch video of the service here.
