Comments

All saints under the guidance of its former rector, Geoff Curtiss, has created and  maintained an exceptional urban ministry. The key questions involve future relationships with the Episcopal Day School and the Jubilee Center. They are strongly committed to outreach and being a voice for those who have no voice. With its proximity to New York City, growing and maintaining a sense of community and permanence among the parishioners has always been a challenge. Yet, this congregation is poised to do great things and seeks both a visionary and a priest with a heart for urban ministry to walk with them on the next steps of their journey.
