The Bishop of Fredericton seeks to appoint a priest and rector, in a part-time arrangement, to the Parish of Restigouche in the Anglican Diocese of Fredericton.  

The Parish of Restigouche encompasses the area in and around the city of Campbellton and the town of Dalhousie (now Heron Bay), in the central north part of the province on the south bank of the beautiful Restigouche River. The Parish is a three-point charge with a church building in each of Campbellton, Dalhousie and Robinsonville, and a parish rectory situated in Campbellton. 

Services are held Sundays in two of the church buildings, with a combined service on the third Sunday of the month in Campbellton. Laypersons are involved in all aspects of worship and the congregation is active in mission and outreach in their greater community and beyond.

Though there has been a decline in membership and the population of the area, this parish seeks a leader to continue spiritual growth and help to bring numerical growth. The extent and responsibilities of this part-time position are to be mutually agreed upon. 

Please include the following in an expression of interest.  

  • 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.

This posting will remain open until the position is filled.
