Meet our Rector: Holly Lyman Antolini!
...
When the Search Committee met with Holly, she impressed us all with her ability to get us all talking, not only with her but also with each other. Her spirituality was evident as she began our meeting first with a prayer and then with a Taize hymn. She said that she rejoices in her ability to bring a congregation to spirituality, using Bible study, prayer groups and renewal.
...
Holly has worked on many other projects related to the environment and environmental theology and liturgy as well as with race and diversity issues. She served on a committee advocating for Native Americans in Maine and she also helped develop a program called the Triangle of Hope, a three-nation fellowship in Virginia that works towards retracing and helping to heal the wounds of the slave trade with contacts in Ghana and Liverpool. She has a heart for the inner city, the disenfranchised, the poor, and homeless.
Her knowledge and love of music makes her particularly suited to St James. She sat in on our service a few weeks ago and after the drumming circle Susan said her saw her with a big grin on her face. It was while singing in a choir at the ordination of the first woman priest in California, that Holly received her own calling.
...
Holly is an excellent administrator and capable of multitasking. She has an impressive memory, is a voracious reader and is capable of juggling many balls at the same time. She discerns first before she initiates anything and is very thorough at following through until things are up and running. Her style is to delegate and collaborate and not to dictate.
A few facts about her career may be helpful. After graduating from Yale with honors in history, she worked in the secular world in California, writing cookbooks and a book on solar heating and cooling for Sunset Books. As a new Christian, baptized into the Episcopal Church as an adult, she was a course designer, leadership trainer, publicist, curriculum designer, and Board member of the Lay Academy of the Episcopal Diocese of California. She was called to the ordained ministry, and attended the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, where she received a Masters in Divinity in 1991 with honors. She attended several training seminars for church development and leadership training. She then served as a priest in charge of several small congregations in Maine. During this period she worked hard to build up these churches from a small base to a viable size. Her previous job was as Associate for Congregational Development in St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia. She served in that capacity until September 2007, leaving the post because a new rector was being called.
In her "sabbath time," she loves gardening, hiking, reading, praying, swimming, playing the piano, entertaining her two cats, Pauli & Prisca, and expanding her culinary horizons, cooking with her two "foodie" daughters, Tina, 25, who is a radio reporter for NPR affiliate WFCR in Amherst, MA, and Tessa, 23, with a BFA in acting from Boston University, launching her career in New York City.
While she has many of the skills we seek in a rector and has served as interim, priest-in charge, and assoc. rector of a very large church, this is her first time as a "regular" rector. Therefore it would be great if we could support her in whatever way we can as she eagerly makes this new transition.
Holly wants to open the doors of St James to the world around us, so that the rest of Cambridge and Somerville can see the reverence of the holy space that is our church. She hopes to put down deep roots here, as she gets to know us and our community, so that together we can build a ministry, not only within our walls, but in the larger world.
This process has a been a long 18 months but it has been so worth while. Your prayers and our hard work have brought us and Holly together.
