- They'd love to hire a full-time priest, but they don't have the pledge numbers to support that right now. They are REALLY hoping to get to that soon. They're looking into different income options now.
- They are a diverse congregation, which is beautiful and also a challenge some times.
- They hold their clergy to high standards
This is the opportunity of a lifetime for the right priest. This congregation looks like the kingdom of God: racial and ethnic diversity, socio-economic diversity: professionals and laborers, students: tiny babies to wise, old pillars of the community: long-time members, newcomers: singles, couples, families of all sorts. Marathon runners and the physically disabled; mentally challenged and intellectuals.
Their website and Facebook page will tell you a lot about them.
A beautiful, charming rectory in the (Syracuse) University neighborhood is included in the compensation package.
