The Bishop of Fredericton seeks to appoint an incumbent to the Anglican Parish of Restigouche in the Diocese of Fredericton on a full-time basis.   

The Parish of Restigouche is located in the north of New Brunswick on the banks of the Restigouche River. It is a three point charge with church buildings in Campbellton, Robinsonville and Dalhousie, though worship regularly occurs in only the first two. Prior to the pandemic, monthly combined worship with fellowship was held. A parish rectory is situated in Campbellton which is approximately half-way between the other two points.

There is good lay involvement within the life of the parish, within worship, prayer groups and bible studies. The church also has a strong presence in the community life of the area.

 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.

Contact Cheryl Jacobs, bishop's secretary, for a more detailed parish profile.
