Fr James Mallon is the part-time Episcopal Vicar for Parish Renewal and Leadership Support for the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. Although now former pastor of Saint Benedict Parish in Halifax, he is still very much part of this faith community.


Fr James is also the author of the best selling book Divine Renovation: From A Maintenance to a Missional Parish, an engaging guide for parishes seeking to cultivate vibrant and dynamic faith communities centred on missionary discipleship. In 2016, Fr James also authored the Divine Renovation Guidebook, a step by step manual for transforming a parish. In 2019, Fr James co-authored the book, Unlocking Your Parish with Ron Huntley an inspiring and practical read on Alpha as a powerful tool for evangelization and discipleship. 


The message of Divine Renovation has resonated in the hearts of tens of thousands of pastors and the laity throughout the world. It has inspired and motivated them to act and seek help in transforming their own faith community.  To answer their needs, the Divine Renovation Ministry was created.  Fr James serves the Archdiocese with half of his time and serves in the Divine Renovation Ministry with the other half of his time.


He currently resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In addition to his ministry, Fr James loves soccer, movies, photography, dogs, everything Apple and good single malt scotch.
