The Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia seeks a full-time Rector of Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria and Dean of Columbia. Following the retirement of the previous incumbent there is a vacancy for an exceptional cleric and leader to fill the above positions.
The Diocese of Islands & Inlets is an equitable employer that operates on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and the Broughton Archipelago. As an institution we acknowledge the Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Kwakwaka'wakw nations whose relationship with these lands and waters is ongoing. We acknowledge our role in the historic dispossession of land, language, and culture, and are committed to being a part a reconciliatory path forward. We are a regional expression of the Anglican Church of Canada, part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. We are a progressive church where seekers are welcome to receive communion, baptism, marriage, and ordination on an equal basis.
Christ Church Cathedral is located in scenic and temperate Victoria, capital of the Canadian province of British Columbia, and a city offering many attractions, both natural and cultural. Christ Church is justly known as “A Cathedral for the City.” It is the largest church in Victoria and has often been voted “Best Place to Worship in the City.” The Dean is second in ecclesiastical rank to the Bishop and plays a key role in diocesan leadership. As Rector, this individual leads a resource-size parish with a sizeable team of staff and active volunteers.
