KoH mourns death of Trustee
The trustees of Kitchen of Hope, Inc. mourn the loss of their dear colleague, the Rev. James D. Gowland, Deacon, who died November 21, in Turnersville, NJ. Deacon Jim was involved in the fight against hunger and food insecurity for decades. He also served on the diocesan Deacon’s Hunger Task Force.
Ordained on June 9, 2007 by The Rt. Rev. George E. Councell, Jim served as Deacon at Grace Church in Haddonfield, St. Mary’s Church in Haddon Heights, and Holy Trinity Church in Wenonah.
Celebration of Life will be on December 9, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at Church of the Good Shepherd, 315 Highland Terrace, Pitman, NJ 08071.
Please pray for the repose of Deacon Gowland’s soul and for his wife, Janice and the family as they grieve his passing.
