Job Description
Saint Mark’s, Locust Street Seeks Associate Rector

Saint Mark’s, Locust Street, in Center City Philadelphia is searching for a priest to serve as Associate Rector, to share in collaborative ministry at this progressive, urban, Anglo-catholic parish.

The parish’s dual emphasis on engaging worship of God and care for God’s people, especially those in need, has driven a period of growth, particularly among young adults and families with children. The Associate Rector provides crucial leadership in several of these areas of recent growth, and shares in the leadership of the parish with the Rector. Gifts in liturgical leadership, preaching, pastoral care, Christian formation, and administration, among others, are all important to the fruitful exercise of ministry in this context.

Saint Mark’s continues to experience a call to grow in its capacity for ministry and in its health and vitality, which includes increasing numbers of people involved in various aspects of ministry, and especially in attendance at Sunday worship. We are looking for someone who will work collaboratively with the Rector, lay leadership, and volunteers to contribute to this process of growth, and who shares a vision of the church that is hopeful, engaging, and expansive.

We are looking for a priest possessed of significant gifts for ministry, including a desire to stretch his or her self as a leader in a parish that’s engaged in a wide variety of ministries, and that strives to adopt an outward-looking focus, while attending to the pastoral needs of the parish community. The clergy at Saint Mark’s lead liturgies that are said and sung, use the breadth of the Prayer Book, and that daily require a meaningful engagement with the Scriptures for preaching, study, and instruction.

Those who find such a vocation attractive and who believe they may have appropriate gifts are asked to please express their interest to the Rector, Fr. Sean Mullen, by sending a resume and cover letter that shares some insight about their strongest gifts for ministry. Please submit materials by email to: semullen@saintmarksphiladelphia.org
