Vacancy spotlight: Assistant priest for St Vincent's Algarve, Portugal

One of the Churches used by St Vincent's: Nossa Senhora da Luz, Praia da Luz
The Senior Chaplain of St Vincent's Anglican parish, in the beautiful Algarve region of southern Portugal, wishes to appoint an assistant priest. It is a part-time position and thus would ideally suit a recently retired priest.

Here are the essential qualities being sought in the appointee:
  • a priest in the catholic tradition with a heart for evangelical outreach who can work in cooperation with the Senior Chaplain to meet the needs of the English speaking community. 
  • a priest whose life and teaching are solidly founded in Christ and his Gospel
  • a priest skilled in liturgy and leading public worship and who can preach with imagination
  • a gifted teacher to give spiritual guidance to both young and old. 
  • a priest who enjoys pastoral work. 
  • organisational skills, computer literate.

The package on offer:
  • an attractive part stipend (no pension benefits)
  • fully furnished accommodation
  • provision of a car
  • generous expense provision for car and accommodation
The priest will have the support and enthusiasm of a ministry team (both ordained and lay), committed volunteers and an active Church Council.

Resolutions A and B are passed for ecumenical reasons.

    This is very out of date - not surprising. Fr. Lars Nowen left MONTHS ago without giving any explanation to his bewildered Congregation.
    The congregation is depleting every week. Locums are only a temporary solution - 2 services a week and NO pastoral care!!!
