Job Description
The Cathedral Church of St. Paul is searching for an interim rector to lead following the retirement of the current dean in June 2024. The Interim Dean will work with both the parish congregation of the Cathedral, as well as the Cathedral Chapter.

The cathedral has an active laity and a strong spirit of volunteerism. This is seen in the volunteer-led Sunday morning Hot Breakfast for Hungry Folks and outreach activities such as backpack donations to nearby schools. The congregation is economically and ethnically diverse, intentionally cultivates an LGBTQ+ inclusive culture, and welcomes the presence of religious orders. The cathedral choir and choir school provides sterling music education, particularly to young people, and is thoroughly integrated into the liturgical life of the cathedral and the diocese. The cathedral maintains strong relationships with community organizations in Detroit’s Midtown neighborhood, including the Wayne State University Medical School.
