Job Description
St. Michael’s in Carmichael, California, near Sacramento seeks a full-time dynamic and creative priest who has a passion for the Gospel and is interested in helping our congregation live more fully into our mission statement:  Centered in our love for Jesus, we worship God, reach out to those in need, celebrate our blessings, and love and care for each other. 

We are in an affluent, single-family neighborhood.  The parish has been at this location since 1958, and the campus has been expanding ever since.  Since 1961, we have shared property and ministry with St. Michael’s Episcopal Day School, an independent and Episcopal day school.

We value collaboration, and this new hire will be part of our ministry leaders. The areas of responsibility will be determined by the gifts, talents, experience, and interests of the successful applicant.

St. Michael’s Episcopal Church is a faithful, vibrant, aging congregation who are engaged and committed to the church.  We have very few families as members.  Even so, our ministry includes serving school and neighborhood families in creative ways. We have a 10 a.m. Sunday service that meets in person and is livestreamed. We also have a 5pm Zoom-hosted contemplative prayer service. Visit this webpage to get an idea of our worship:

St. Michael’s is engaged in social justice work as well as offering mercy to the suffering and vulnerable. We leverage creative ways to continue our ministry and will continue to do so. We uphold our commitment to meet safely and thoughtfully, while adhering to the Sacramento County health guidelines.  We stay connected through Zoom, phone calls, and emails.
