St. John’s has a long and rich history in Stamford CT. Many of our congregants have been at St. John’s from multiple generations. The difficulty arises that with this very committed core of parishioners which is great, at the same time it can be resistant to change. The new PIC will need to find the right balance of honoring and respecting what St. John’s means while leading St. John’s into the future.
We adhere to the Episcopal Church in Connecticut compensation guidelines, which can be found in The Commons Companion here.
