For the Rev. Geoffrey Little and his wife, Blanca, it’s time to leave one spiritual home and build a new one.
Today will be the Littles’ last day at St. James Episcopal Church on East Grand Avenue, but they’ll continue to serve the Latino community in Fair Haven and Fair Haven Heights.
This week, they’ll open a new evangelical parish, worshiping in a banquet hall at 229 Grand Ave.
Blanca Little, who has run St. James Christian Academy, will open a new school in the fall, running it out of their home on Lenox Street.
“We’re going to open a new church in Fair Haven,” Geoff Little said. “It’s going to be called All Nations Christian Church and it’s going to be associated with the new Anglican Church of North America.”
That affiliation is important to the Littles, because the change is much more weighty than just changing addresses. For Geoff Little, it means resigning as a priest in the Episcopal Church.
