Our strengths lie in our diversified leadership, variety of involved and shared missions, core relationships, and physical plant. We are also located in a well-established community with a growing family population, where the combination of the traditional “feel” and inclusionary thought of the Episcopal church are appealing to many.

Please refer to our parish profile for additional information.


As further described in our parish profile, our main challenges are the transition from full-time clergy to 3/4 time clergy, bringing together our “church life” and “life”, and finding our calling in the evolving role of the Episcopal church. As described, we look forward to addressing these challenges with our next rector through the redevelopment process.


Our future as a parish revolves around themes of faith and spirituality, education, and community. We seek a Rector who will challenge and energize us in this next step in our parish life. We and our diocesan leadership have confidence that our parish shows great promise for redevelopment and the diocese has committed to work with us to discern a call to a priest who has the appropriate gifts and demonstrated ability to accomplish this.
