The Bishop of Fredericton seeks to appoint a priest and rector to the Anglican Parish of Riverview in the Diocese of Fredericton.
The Parish of Riverview is primarily located in the Town of Riverview in the southeast corner of New Brunswick, part of a tri-community along with the cities of Moncton and Dieppe. The single church facility, St. John the Baptist, is relatively modern and includes a large hall with kitchen, several gathering and meetings areas, and a lift. A two-story, 33-year-old rectory is located across the street from the church building.
On a typical Sunday there is a said BCP Holy Communion at 8:30 am and Holy Communion, alternating between the BCP and BAS liturgies, at 10:30 am. There are a number of trained layreaders, strong lay leadership and several active parish groups and outreach initiatives.
The parish defines itself as a warm, caring family in Christ that strives to maintain good relationships both inside and outside of the congregation, valuing the importance of growing in faith and caring for one another.
Expressions of interest should include:
- A Curriculum Vitae.
- Three referees prepared to provide information on the cleric’s pastoral skills, his or her interpersonal and communication skills, ability to build community, ministry experience and sensitivity. If you are an Assistant Curate or graduating postulant for ordination, you should give your Rector, supervising priest or mentor as a reference.
- A written statement of about 500 words outlining why they are being called to explore this opportunity.
Clergy from outside the diocese should confirm that they have their bishop’s permission to explore a possible appointment outside of their own diocese.
A confidential reference may also be requested from your Diocesan Bishop and in addition to other references. The successful candidate will be required to provide a valid criminal record and vulnerable sector check and may be required to authorize a credit check.
