|Grace Episcopal Church|
|Grace Episcopal Church is an Anglo-Catholic congregation with a heavy emphasis on outreach to the community, a love of learning, and a deep appreciation for the holiness and beauty of worship. Since the retirement of our former rector, we have been engaged in reflection and discernment about the next phase of our life in Christ. We look forward to welcoming our next Rector as we continue to celebrate our Anglo Catholic heritage, as well as seek to grow in faithful response to where God calls us. We are an established presence in the community, with doors and hearts that are open to all. There is an open invitation to come and worship with us.
Our congregational discernment workshop overwhelming identified inspired preaching as the most important attribute for our new rector. Our next rector will focus on preaching to communicate, to celebrate and to challenge us. Scripture based, intellectual sermons thoughtfully relating to life today are desired. Preserving our Anglo-Catholic tradition of worship, weekday services and our musical liturgy are core to our parish life and are traditions we would like to maintain. An appreciation for music is also desired, given the prominence of music within our worship services, especially our Easter Vigil and Christmas Eve Masses, as well as special events and concerts held at the Church.
We are seeking a rector whose leadership style is collaborative and is approachable for all ages. Grace has a strong history of lay leadership, encouraged by previous rectors. It is our hope that our next rector will continue to equip, motivate, and empower us for ministry, both within the congregation and in the wider community.
Pastoral care is important. At various times we have experienced inconsistent care for older
Grace Church is ready to embark on the next chapter of our history.
