GALVESTON — Since 1999, lay vicar Michael Jackson has served as executive director of Galveston’s St. Vincent’s House. He will officially retire on June 15, but two days ago he passed that position on to the Rev. Freda Marie Brown, who is new to the island, but not to the ministry.
St. Vincent’s is a social service agency and an outreach of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, which is headed up by Bishop Andrew Doyle. He offered praise for Jackson’s work.
