Comments

A lively vibrant congregation that is seeking to expand its sense of mission and ministry. It recognizes the challenge of embracing Anglican traditions while discovering what its role as church should be in an ever-changing world.

Although the congregation is seeking a priest-in-charge, its hope is that the successful candidate will seek to be rector after an appropriate time.
