What do you want this person to do?
St. Francis on the Hill Episcopal Church, El Paso, Texas, seeks Vicar for a resilient congregation of 108 that has risen Phoenix-like after a painful split 9 years ago. We house a Montessori School. We host Al Anon and Boy Scouts. We have hosted the El Paso Opera, the Austin Girls’ Choir, and diocesan events. We have a gorgeous hilltop southwestern-style facility with central courtyard and fountain. We are Eucharist-centered. We bless animals on our patronal feast, backpacks before school starts, and invite the whole community up the hill on July 4th for the best view of El Paso fireworks. We fund an outreach providing $70 per student for a school-supplies-and-clothing spree in August to several grades of an elementary school in an El Paso colonia. We are passionately inclusive and seek a priest who is positively receptive to same-sex marriages. We are not a one-issue parish, however. We want to welcome other disenfranchised and unchurched folks: divorced Roman Catholics, ethnically marginalized people, college students and refugees. We need an energetic, warm, theologically astute priest with a sense of humor and a passion for “doing” the gospel. A creative thinker, a unifier, a down-to-earth preacher. (Walking on water on Holy Days desirable but not required!)
We offer a total compensation package of $58,000 to $65,000 with a possible increase in 6 months based on meeting goals for parish growth.
