Clergy Transition

Welcome! St. Michael’s is seeking a Priest in Charge with the possibility of becoming our full-time Rector.

We are an inclusive, loving community and seek a priest who will partner with us as we explore ways to communicate and demonstrate that love to the wider community.

As faithful Christians, the parishioners of St. Michael’s know that God will guide our minds and spirit so that we may select and receive a faithful priest who will care for us, strengthen, and inspire us to lead ministries that live and proclaim the transforming love of God.

As part of this exciting journey, we conducted a survey and parish meeting to identify ways in which we are living into the definition of a parish community, as defined by the Episcopal Church of Connecticut (ECCT). The video posted here is one outcome of this self-study.

More details about this open postion is posted on the Transition Ministry Conference (TMC) and  Office of Transition Ministry (OTM) websites.

If you believe God might be calling you to discern with us, please send a Letter of Interest, a current resume or CV, and a current OTM profile to ECCT’s Diocesan Transition Minister, Ms. Amber Page Gehr, at .

ECCT follows a transition model called Transition is the New Normal (TINN).  You can watch a Clergy Day presentation of the model here. If you would like to know more about TINN or the Priest in Charge process in Connecticut, please reach out to Amber Page Gehr, at

Located in the historic borough of Litchfield, CT, St. Michael’s has much to offer as a community and a parish, including a rectory, only a short walk to the church.

Please hold St. Michael’s in your prayers that God grants, through new leadership, that parishioners will more surely fulfill their role in God’s eternal purpose.

A parish in ECCT in the new missional age is a community …

of theological imagination
…where our hearts and minds are moved by God’s presence in our lives, in our neighborhoods, and in the world;

fed by Word & sacrament

…where our stories connect with God’s story in Holy Scripture, and where we experience God’s grace in baptism and Eucharist;

forming disciples and apostles in God’s mission

…where people grow as followers of Jesus and are sent by the Holy Spirit into the world to join God’s work of restoration and reconciliation;

and connected to the wider body of Christ

…by sharing our lives with companions in Christ across the Episcopal Church in Connecticut and the wider Church.
