Additional comments re: compensation, benefits and housing.

Sufficient salary plus the rectory and a stable parish makes this a lovely option for anyone looking to wind down a career, or transition into something alongside active parish ministry.

Liturgical style and practice

Broad church


Small, tight knit parish with a growing Sunday School.  Strong lay leadership that has supported them through the pandemic and into what comes next.  The parish also runs a summer chapel by Lake Ontario during the warmer months.  Definition of "small, but mighty"!


Changing demographics and cultural forces have had an effect on all North Country parishes--the population continues to decline, and this can be a drag on morale at times.
