Comments

Grace seeks a rector who will nourish the hearts, minds, and souls of all who come to Grace. They look forward to liturgies that juxtapose music with silence, richness with simplicity, and levity with solemnity.

They hope to hear sermons that are thoughtful, challenging, and grounded in scripture; and they're looking for a rector who embraces both progressive thinking and our Anglican Tradition.
