Job Description
The leaders of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Johnstown, PA, and of St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church in Somerset, PA, are searching for a full-time Priest-in-Charge to serve both congregations and communities.

The two parishes will remain separate entities, with their own memberships, vestries, budgets, and services.  However, they are looking forward to exploring, with their new priest, opportunities to gather for shared times of worship, fellowship, learning, prayer, and service.

St. Mark’s and St. Francis each bring a rich heritage of traditions and community engagement to the partnership.  St. Mark’s runs an animal welfare ministry and welcomes visitors for Community Common Prayer.  St. Francis invites food-insecure neighbors to a free summer barbecue and works with another Somerset church to offer a Vacation Bible School for local children.

Located 30 miles apart on the east side of the scenic Laurel Highlands, individuals and families in the region have access to a plethora of outdoor activities (such as hiking, fishing, rafting, skiing and biking), historical sites (including three National Park sites), higher education, cultural events, the Johnstown Symphony orchestra, and other attractions.

The people of St. Mark’s and St. Francis in the Fields look forward to welcoming a Priest-in-Charge to join them in this partnership and to guide them in serving God, each other, and their communities.
