Part-Time Rector:
Trinity Church is an Episcopal congregation located in the village of Seneca Falls, NY. It is a member parish in the Diocese of Central New York. Trinity Church was incorporated on February 11, 1831. It’s current building was constructed in 1886. A new parish house was constructed in 1915 due to alterations in the Erie Canal that affected the site. The physical location and the worship space is the pride of the congregation. Seneca Falls is known for a number of important local, regional and nation events and sites, including the National Women’s Hall of Fame, the Erie Canal Museum, the nearby Montezuma Wildlife Refuge, and the New York Chiropractic College.

Our Trinity prayer is as much a part of our mission today as it was when generations before us first worshipped at this site in 1886.

O Christ, the Rock of our faith, we give thanks for these years of worship in this building. Your people, as living stones, built a spiritual home for worship, ministry, and mission. Grant us your continued blessings. Straighten us in our commitment of love and service to the world. May that commitment be conveyed to the
remotest generation. This we ask in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

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.

Seeking:
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.
