Job Description
We are a community of Christians who seek a deeper faith in God through the Episcopal tradition and who look to the Bible for guidance in our lives. We participate in God’s mission, imitating the life of Christ Jesus in all that we do by following His admonition to “love God above all else and love our neighbors as ourselves.” We have hope that the world can be a better place, and we believe that God’s love is the answer. We find spiritual growth and meaning in our lives through worship, fellowship within our parish, and community with the larger city of New London.

We are seeking our next clergy leader, who will be a full-time Priest in Charge with the possibility of becoming Rector after three years.  If you would like to know more about the Priest in Charge process in Connecticut, please contact Transition Minister Ms. Amber Page Gehr at

Please review our parish profile on our website to see that life in the St. James community hopefully reflects not only on life within the church walls but also on our deep commitment to God’s mission through the activities of our Lord’s Pantry, Jumble Shoppe, Community Meal, Faith in Action, Caring for Creation Committee and other parish ministries, and through our longstanding involvement with area service organizations such as the Covenant Shelter, Homeless Hospitality Center, the Drop-In daycare center, St. Francis House, Ecuadorian Mission and other programs outside our church walls.

We acknowledge that we can always improve in all we do, and we look forward to many growth opportunities.
