Things Celtic seem to be appearing frequently in our culture – in music, art, jewelry, movies – as well as in spirituality. In fact, Celtic spiritual tradition is deeply embedded in Anglican Christianity.
The ancient Celts prized deep connections with nature and the divine wisdom hidden within it – in the rocks, plants and animals that share our world, as well as in our souls and physical bodies. Due to current upheavals in our earth’s climate as well as in human society, a deep yearning for a different way seems to be emerging in many of us, which may find resonance in the wisdom of our Celtic Christian ancestors.

8/2/17: Cathedral Dean (Helena, MT)

What are you looking for?
Dean of Montana Episcopal Cathedral
What’s the name of your church or organization?
St Peter’s Cathedral
Where is the job site located?
Helena, MT
What do you want this person to do?
St. Peter’s is a beautiful gothic church in the capital city of Helena, MT. We are a large pastoral church with the desire for the new Dean to know each parishioner individually. We are kind and welcoming, especially to people with special needs or in difficult circumstances. While ministering to parishioners is very important, community outreach is also important. We actively participate and donate to several service organizations in the community. The church is also a Family Promise participant. Based on our recent survey, our congregation skews older (mainly over 50), slightly more female (60%), and 73% have been a member of St. Peter’s for over 5 years. Although we are an aging congregation we do have young families and young members, and the desire is to increase our membership in this age group. We encourage all parishioners to be involved both in the church and in the community. Our worship centers on God’s Saving Grace through the Person of Jesus Christ.
