Trinity Episcopal Church and St. Richard’s Episcopal School seek an energetic priest or transitional deacon to join our team as Assistant Rector for Children and Families and School Chaplain.

As Chaplain to St. Richard’s, this individual will guide the school’s religious life and study, as experienced through school chapel, special services, and collaborative development of the Divinity curriculum, and will provide pastoral care for the school community. S/he will have a primary responsibility in promoting the Episcopal identity of the school, as well as values of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. The Assistant Rector will also share in all the privileges and responsibilities of ordained ministry, including pastoral care, preaching and liturgical leadership at Trinity.
