Miles Brandon

The Rev. Miles R. Brandon, II, Vicar

I am married to Ashley Brandon. Ashley serves as the 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 a new Episcopal Church in the Brushy Creek area. She has been a significant part of the birth and growth of St. Julian's and a true partner in this work. I deeply value people of all creeds, color, gender identity, nationality, and sexual orientation, and I believe each and all are loved by God infinitely and, in turn, we should love each other in the same way.

Jonathan

The Rev. Jonathan McManus-Dail, Associate Vicar for Youth and Young Adult Ministries

​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.
