Job Description
We are followers of Jesus, inspired by His Word and example to truly love God and our neighbor. We seek someone who can counsel and help heal us when needed, who knows her or his own strengths and limits and is willing to enlist the talents of the congregation in providing ministry. Spiritual and community engagement, tradition and innovation, reason and mission are important to us and we hope to engage a priest who is excited by these things and can facilitate our continual renewal.

We need a priest who understands the spiritual needs of older Americans and a small parish, someone who will “be there” when we need pastoral care. In focus groups, our parishioners listed and prioritized the qualities they are seeking a new priest. Listening was their top priority, followed by effective preaching, understanding the needs of the community, being inclusive and supportive of human rights, a builder of community who is patient, approachable, strong in pastoral care and willing to make home and hospital visits. Although we can only afford a 1/2-time priest, we need to know that our priest will be there when we need her/him.
