Miles Brandon

The Rev. Miles R. Brandon II, Vicar

I am married to Ashley Brandon. Ashley is also a minister in the Episcopal Church and serves as Lower and Middle School Chaplain at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Austin. Ashley is my best friend and partner in this adventure of planting an Episcopal Church in far Northwest Austin. I deeply value all people as the beloved children of God despite creed, color, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, or any other artificial measure that seeks to divide one person from another.


The Rev. Jonathan McManus-Dail, Associate Vicar

​As a newly ordained person, I’m beyond grateful that my first full-time church ministry gig is at St. Julian’s, a church named after and inspired by one of my favorite saints. St. Julian wrote about her overwhelming experience of God, through Jesus Christ, as a divine, all-loving mother who gently cradles all of creation in the palm of her hand.
