The Bishop of the Territory of the People is seeking a new Dean and Rector for St. Paul’s Cathedral, in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.
The Rector has oversight of a Cathedral parish of approximately 300 members in a city of about 100,000. The position is supported by part-time paid staff: an office coordinator, a custodian, a music director and a youth coordinator. Leadership is supported by retired honorary assistant clergy, two wardens, two Lay Ministers of Word and Sacrament, plus a large group of volunteers in groups, teams and standing committees.
The Rector of the Cathedral is also the Dean of the Diocese of the Territory of the People (the Territory) and as such is the second ecclesiastical officer – next to the Bishop. The Dean therefore participates significantly in the offices of the Territory.
We are looking for a new Dean who is passionate and experienced in preaching, parish growth and development, leadership and pastoral care. We are seeking an effective communicator who is compassionate, friendly, engaging, and energetic to help guide St. Paul's vision for many years to come. Three areas the Cathedral Community has indicated are priorities in ministry are:
1) Supportive in strengthening Children, Youth and Families Ministry,
2) Comfortable with both BAS and BCP worship and open to exploring new ways of worship,
3) Proficient and comfortable with modern technology and virtual ministry.
Clergy from the wider church must present confirmation they are a priest in good standing and have their bishop’s permission to seek employment opportunities outside their own diocese. A current Criminal Records Check must be submitted with the application.
Parish Profiles are available now. Applications should be made by 31 May 2021.
Interested clergy are invited to contact:
