Additional comments re: compensation, benefits and housing.

This is a unique 6-7 month Interim position between the retirement of long term rector and the next rector.

Liturgical style and practice

Broad church with elegance, over 5 Sunday liturgies. BCP and Hymnal are standard, but are supplemented with other approved resources.


Robust congregational ministries led by laity.

Willing to take a risk in starting fresh ministries.

Above average resources in talent and finances.

Highly capable staff of paid and retired clergy; as well as an excellent lay staff.

We do a great deal of hands-on ministry, and don’t just throw money at issues or complications.

Substantial campus with a garden, excellent buildings, historical cemetery, lovely grounds.


We are seeking an experienced priest, preferably with Interim training, for a short-term Interim role from January through summer of 2024.  This priest should have healthy administrative experience in a large church or non-profit, the ability to come in and 'steer' the crew quickly and with compassion.


Long term search profile is below, along with the website and other media links.

Profile available here!

The retiring rector of 25 years leaves after Christmas 2023.

A short-term Interim will be serving until the new rector joins us in the early summer of 2024.
