We have strong lay leadership. Many are drawn to us because of the beauty of our historic
building. Our diversity by race, class, culture, and gender identity is our strength. Our
commitment to social justice is an attribute. The programming we offer as outreach for children
touches over 140, largely Hispanic, children. We are a resilient community.
Our building needs much restoration. There is a lack of participation in our Sunday School. Our
participation in Sunday services is down. We are a community that reaches those who are
economically wanting. As such we need to increase our stewardship.
We are looking for a rector who is grounded in prayer and spiritual practices. A good candidate
will lead the congregation in deep meaningful worship, be compassionate, understanding,
enthusiastic, caring, humble and a good listener. We seek someone who is nurtured in the
Anglican/Episcopal traditions, yet has the expansiveness to embrace different ways of going
through the world. Our community is resilient. So we will stand with you in adversity
We welcome interested candidates. Please submit a cover letter, resume, a PDF of your Office of Transitional Memory profile and, if you have it, links to recent sermons and any other material that would help us to learn about you to:
