Job Description
The Cathedral Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania seeks a Dean and Rector for our vibrant and mission-focused community. We seek a Dean and Rector who is experienced and enthusiastic in leading a large multi-generational congregation in a medium-sized city environment.

The Dean and Rector will provide support for, and be supported by, a diverse and talented staff of 13 clergy and laypersons including a multilingual Curate, Director of Administration & Finance, Canon for Ministry of Music, and an engaged Vestry. Rich in history and tradition, Nativity was founded in 1862. The Cathedral building itself is a jewel in South Bethlehem.

Worship life is beautifully expressed through a variety of liturgical approaches, including family services, Celtic-influenced experiences, Spanish language, healing services, and Eucharist Rite II. The music ministry and concerts are integral to the parish and community.

We are currently engaged in implementing a new master plan for our campus after a successful 3 million dollar capital campaign and in growing relationships with our community. We seek a Priest who is thoughtful, context-sensitive, and supportive of our staff and lay ministry. This is a great opportunity for a gifted Priest to continue expanding our congregation and mission into the future.
