The Reverend Donald Frye has been at Saint James since July 2008 and loves serving the people of Saint James parish.
A native of Akron, Ohio, Don moved to Chicago in 1990 for a six month job assignment having moved from New York City where he served for two years as an urban missionary to homeless single men and women, and welfare moms and their children. Don worked 20 years in book publishing and marketing for nonprofit organizations before being ordained to the priesthood in 2005.
Don is passionate about seeing people connect with God and each other - both in the parish and out in the community. His interests are diverse from reading, watching movies, collecting fountain pens, calligraphy, travel, cooking, and cycling. Fr. Don and his partner David Shallow live in Naperville where they reside with their three Daschunds - Fritz, Owen, and Bob.
