Faithful, family sized congregation located in Morris, IL, 60 miles southwest of Chicago. Most have been part of St. Thomas for many years and have deep commitment to each other. Effective, committed lay leaders are in place.


Previous rector served over 40 years before retiring.

Desire more community connection but numbers are small and community has experienced steady decline (common for rural IL.)



This is really more of a chaplaincy to a faithful, warm congregation. They love their church and their community and seek a rector to journey along side them, nourishing their spiritual lives and helping them continue local outreach as well as explore with them other ways they can serve the community.

Open to 1/2 time or 3/4 time priest.
