Description

Additional comments re: compensation, benefits and housing.

Utilities for the rectory are covered by the parish.

Liturgical style and practice

Typically Holy Eucharist Rite II Eucharistic Prayer B, except in Lent when it is Eucharistic Prayer A. Gloria, Kyrie, and Sanctus sung as appropriate. Lessons read by laity and the Gospel by a deacon when present. Several times ruing the year the Sunday School students take over roles of readers, ushers and greeters. The parish considers itself Broad Church.
