For many years since, the incumbency of the church was filled by the Secretaries of the S.P.G., Madras, notably by A.R. Symonds, J.M. Strachan, M.D., afterwards Bishop of Rangoon, C.E. Kennet, D.D. (Lambeth), the Anglo-Indian divine, F.H. Rcichardt, W. Relton and ArthurWestCott, brother of the present Metropolitan. In more recent years, the Church has been served by Principals of St. Paul’s High School, Vepery, namely, the Rev. K.V. McPherson, now Archdeacon of Bombay, and by the Rev. G.M. Withers, or by Cathedral Chaplin, when the head of St. Paul’s School happened to be a layman. The present arrangement, where by a priest of the ‘Vepery Mission’ is charge of the English Church at San Thome, is thus in keeping with the earliest traditions of San Thome, the present incumbent enjoys further the honour of being the first Indian to occupy the post.
