Christ Church Cathedral, in the Diocese of Western Kansas, is looking for a newly ordained priest or transitional deacon to serve as curate.  This full-time position will offer a unique opportunity to prepare for further ministry by providing significant experience in parish ministry and exposure to the work of Saint Francis Ministries (www.saintfrancisministries.org).  Saint Francis is an international social service organization affiliated with the Episcopal Church that is headquartered in Salina, Kansas where the cathedral is located.
