 The Bishop of Fredericton seeks to appoint a priest and rector to the Parish of St. Peter in the Diocese of Fredericton. 

St. Peter’s parish is located on the western edge of the City of Fredericton, approximately 8 km from the city centre, and consists of the one historic church building of the same name. A large hall, constructed in 2000, and a two-storey rectory are located next to the church building. 

Worship is from the Book of Common Prayer, typically twice on Sundays and with Morning Prayer said each weekday.  The parish is looking for someone to lead them into a reengagement with each other and with the larger community following the pandemic, to ensure they remain a spiritually uplifting and welcoming church.   

Expressions of interest will be considered as they arrive.  Please include:

  • A Curriculum Vitae.
  • A written statement of about 500 words outlining why you are being called to explore this opportunity.
  • The names and contact information for 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.

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.

Deadline to express interest: February 28, 2023
