Rector Search

The search committee has received a good selection of candidates and is currently reviewing their dossiers. We expect to begin conducting interviews in January. Please keep us and all our candidates in your prayers. 

Church of the Atonement, Chicago

A vibrant Anglo-Catholic parish situated in the diverse neighborhood of Edgewater, Atonement seeks a full-time rector. Our life is grounded in exuberant worship: three Sunday masses, Marian devotions, choral evensong, and daily masses celebrated by retired priests. Parishioners lead an EfM group, a variety of classes and forums, and the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Our outreach ministries include a local food pantry, men’s and women’s shelters, needy elementary students, mentoring for refugee families, World AIDS Day, and more. Frequent community events, processions, and joyful bell-ringing give us a strong presence in our neighborhood. Challenges: attracting more young families; maintaining our beautiful historic building. Our new rector will be deeply committed to Christ, an unabashed Anglo-Catholic with a progressive and inclusive vision. We seek someone who is energetic and mature, an inspiring preacher and loving pastor—and humble enough to enable the ministries of others.

This is our official OTM ("Office for Transition Ministry") form — but only its narrative portion. Candidates will be able to get the full form via the diocesan website.
