Job Description
Located in downtown Cleveland, Trinity Church is the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio. Trinity Cathedral has a rich history of vibrant, inclusive and prophetic ministry in the heart of a changing city, an outstanding program of music and arts and a strong core of leadership committed to growth and vitality of the church for years to come. Trinity is surrounded by the rapidly expanding Cleveland State University, and draws its membership from neighborhoods and communities throughout the metropolitan area. With the recent calling of our 12th Dean, we are building a ministry team that will empower the people of Trinity and the Diocese of Ohio to be and proclaim the Body of Christ in Northeast Ohio and beyond: sharing in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, proclaiming by word and example the good news of God in Christ, and striving for peace and justice.

We seek a Priest Associate who will share with the Dean in the pastoral leadership of Trinity through sacrament, pastoral care, mission, Christian formation and administration. Specifically, the Associate will be responsible for the coordination of mission/outreach ministries and Christian formation ministries, and will cultivate connections in our neighborhood and on the college campus that surround us. The Associate will share in the pastoral, liturgical and administrative leadership of the church, and will also work closely with colleagues from throughout the Diocese of Ohio. The Associate will work closely with the Dean to ensure that Trinity is a healthy, loving and inclusive church that remains responsive to God’s call and faithful to the spirit and canons of the Episcopal church. The Associate will work with the Dean to celebrate and cultivate diversity in all parts of our life together.
