How to Apply


Applying for Positions

Send your resume and your updated OTM portfolio directly to the contact person, with a copy to the Canon for Transition Ministry. We prefer that you use email not hard copies. The Canon for Transition Ministry does not keep your resume on file or attempt to match you with positions.

Contacting Parishes

Contact only those parishes receiving names. They have created a parish profile and a OTM community portfolio. The parish and Transition Ministry office take considerable care in the preparation of those profiles, and accordingly expects you to study and to use them to discern whether or not you believe your strengths, experience and abilities are a good match for the parish.

Contacting Search Chairs

Contact information is listed on the positions open list and on the OTM community portfolio. We give prayerful attention to the selection of our search chairs. They are some of the most able, committed, dedicated and hard working lay leaders in the diocese. They are your trustworthy contact about the history and dynamics of the parish as well as the progress of the search process. If you are not getting timely and sensitive responses from them, please contact the Canon for Transition Ministry.

Scheduling Interviews

Once the parish search committee has reviewed your material, they may contact you for conversation or to gather more material from you.  Formal interviews and visits to the parish, however, are arranged only after the bishops have given their permission.
