Transitioning Parishes - status and open positions

updated March 8, 2021

Organizing to Call - Discerning

After the retiring or resigning priest departs, the wardens and vestry begin a process that leads to new ordained leadership. This includes working with the Canon for Mission Leadership. One of Connecticut's bishops will be assigned as the "bishop of record"  to help shepherd the process. 

We have several parishes looking for part time clergy. Review of applications for all open positions is ongoing and continues until the positions are filled. Please contact The Reverend Lee Ann Tolzmann, Canon for Mission Leadership at for more information about these part time positions or to apply.
