Liturgical style and practice

Our slogan, “Traditional worship, progressive thinking,” indicates that All Souls parishioners appreciate a dignified worship experience and, at the same time, we value forward-thinking theology. Indeed, until recently we used a form of Rite I, but more recently we have worshiped using Rite II. At times, we also use bells, chanting of the proper preface, and incense. Our worship is enhanced by an excellent volunteer choir, supplemented by paid section leaders. For example, offering Sunday's psalm in the form of Anglican chant is an opportunity for us to elevate the psalm text. It is also a practice that refines and maintains our choir members’ musical skills. Anglican hymnody is at the center of worship, supplemented by American church music, including the art forms of spiritual and gospel music.


The parishioners of All Souls are committed to engaging parish life within contexts of spiritual growth and communal connection.  Many parishioners are quite adept at managing and implementing business models that are appropriate for the needs of the parish.


The past few years have presented a misalignment of mission and vision of clergy, lay leadership, and parishioners.  This misalignment has eventuated in some intentional healing an reconciliation efforts which are currently in progress.  The energy of parish life has shifted and great expectations for the future are being explored.


This position will require a skillset including, but not limited to: administration, pastoral care, mission and vision crafting, conflict mediation, and team-building.
