Calvary Episcopal Church, located at 123 S. Ninth St., will soon be welcoming a new priest, the Rev. H. Knute Jacobson. Jacobson was selected from a national pool of interested applicants after the former rector, Paula Davidson, resigned, Parish Administrator Laura Davidson said.
Jacobson is moving to Columbia from Richland, Mich., and is planning to assume his duties Sept. 7, Davidson said. His family will join him at a later date.
“His first Sunday of preaching will be Sept. 12, because the Sunday before he is going to sit back and observe, which is nice,” Davidson said.
