Description

Liturgical style and practice

Rite II Eucharist. Very high quality choir with several professional singers

Strengths

  • Very international: British, German, African, American, etc.
  • well-educated parish,
  • caring,
  • strong outreach program including returnee program (German citizens who may have moved to the US as children, got in trouble with the law and are deported back to Germany with no language skills, family, etc. to support them...see video on their website)
  • Very interested in spirituality and adult education programs

Challenges

  • Several sort term rectorates and interim periods in the last 15 years. Last rector left for understandable personal reasons.
  • Parish needs stability and a priest willing to stay for more than five years.
  • Need a priest who is a good pastor and will do some hand-holding
