What do you want this person to do?
The yoked parishes of Christ Church and St. John’s seek an Episcopal Priest to lovingly lead us in doing God’s work in this majestic area of His creation. The relationship between the two parishes is strong and mutually respectful. Members of the congregations are great friends and family. We work together on fundraising, Lenten study, spiritual growth, and sometimes, just get together for coffee or pizza. The relationship carries over into the community insofar that the local school district encompasses the two towns of Cape Vincent and Clayton. Members have gone to school together, worked together, and socialized together for years.

Christ Church is looking for a priest to lead and plan our Eucharist, offer us spiritual guidance and work with us to realize our mission statement. We need a leader to help increase our membership and reenlist former members. We need a leader to maintain and grow new and existing ministries. We are looking for a warm and welcoming heart to guide and lead us in pastoral care, to minister and visit our sick, hospitalized and shut in. We need an administrator to be the face of our fundraisers, to foster our financial wealth and encourage responsible fiscal actions for the betterment of our church and community.
St. John’s prayerfully wish to call a priest to St. John’s who will love us and help us to love others as Jesus Christ exemplified. We aim to be inclusive and welcoming, thoughtful and informed, as we do God’s work together.
