What do you want this person to do?
St. Patrick’s in Kenwood is part of a vibrant community that includes vineyards and wineries, farms, small towns with locally-owned businesses and restaurants, and three State Parks which beckon you to enjoy the great outdoors. Residents include long-time Sonoma families, newcomers from more urban parts of the Bay Area, active retirees, farm workers, vineyard managers, and a robust hospitality industry.

We are working hard to be a vital member of and resource for our community, and as our membership skews older, we are engaged in conversations relating to intergenerational relationships, sustainable ministry, worship, Christian education, prayer, and service to our community and our congregation.

St. Patrick’s needs a strong clergy leader who will be connected to our community, who will enjoy the people of Kenwood and its environs, and have strengths that will complement our goals as a church.

We seek:
• A welcoming, hospitable person who enjoys being with us, living among us, and embracing our church family.
• A strong preacher who is articulate, educational, and thought-provoking, who takes the time to craft sermons that draw on a mature faith and insightful intellect.
• A rector who will provide well planned and reverent worship in our time honored Episcopal tradition.
• A skilled leader who can work with others, including deacons, associates and the laity.
• A rector who can provide administrative structure and organization while opening doors for our individual and collective faith growth and development.
• A priest who will be present with us as a pastor, visibly connecting with our church members in need, and at the same time, helping us to create teams of laity to provide pastoral care for each other when appropriate.
• A priest who will be focused on their role within the parish church as well as a presence in the common life in and around Kenwood and the Diocese of Northern California.
