JOB OPPORTUNITY: Incumbent, St Andrew & St Mark, Dorval
The Bishop of Montreal invites applications for the position of Incumbent of the parish of St. Andrew & St. Mark, Dorval. This is a full time position.
The Church of St. Andrew & St. Mark is a vibrant parish in the city of Dorval, about a twenty-five minute drive West of Downtown Montreal. A congregation that was formed with the merger of St. Mark’s (1898) and St. Andrew (1959) in 1969, it is a welcoming and inclusive community centred in Christ and strives to share God’s love and compassion in their neighbourhood and beyond. The parish is searching for a priest who contributes their own spiritual gifts, passions and imagination while bringing out the gifts of the parish, recognizing abilities in the congregation and providing solid leadership.
The bishop is looking to appoint a priest to serve the parish as it continues to grow in their sense of mission and purpose, a priest who will be an enabler to assist and encourage all members in their ministry, a priest who will share God’s welcome and be inclusive to all, a priest who is prayerful and Spirit led.
