Job Description
Located in the heart of downtown Jackson, MS, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral is here to empower people to serve Christ in the world, to find beauty in worship and music, and to transform hearts for God. Being in the city means we strive to welcome all our neighbors including those from the surrounding businesses, political offices, and those living on the streets. Our parishioners occupy a variety of zip codes but all have a heart for the city and our Cathedral community.

Our ministry team values creativity and self-initiative. We have a collaborative work style. The past year has afforded us many opportunities to test these values and put them into practice. We have tried many new things, failed at some and incorporated others. We are now at the point of blending the familiar traditions of our past with the new skills we have acquired during previous three years. Flexibility is key.

The Canon for Parish Life position is one of three priests on staff and one vocational deacon. This position has primary responsibility to supervise lay staff for children and youth programing as well as the Lay Parish Life Director. This person will also participate regularly in liturgy planning, preaching, teaching and small group ministry.
