Diocese of Long Island
For Clergy and Lay Leaders

  Clergy Positions Open  

How clergy may submit and direct their materials:


Clergy applying for congregations that are calling a RECTOR are asked to send a cover letter and their Office for Transition Ministry (OTM) Portfolio directly to the chair of the parish search committee with a copy of the communication also sent to the Rev. Canon John D. Betit, Canon to the Ordinary and Diocesan Transition Minister at: jbetit@dioceseli.org. Clergy submitting their OTM are required to complete all 8 narrative questions and are strongly encouraged to upload sermon materials in the connections section.


Candidates who are applying to congregations where a PRIEST IN CHARGE is being appointed are asked to send cover letter and Office for Transition Ministry (OTM) Portfolio directly to the The Rev. Canon John Betit at jbetit@dioceseli.org.




Receiving Names.   Parishes listed as receiving names have completed their self-study and are free to receive names from applicants (n.b. please carefully review the above process for submitting names).


Self-Study.   Parishes listed as in self-study are in the process of assessing needs, defining leadership, and creating their profiles. Clergy with an interest in one of these self-study parishes may contact Canon Betit but should not contact the parish search committee until the parish is listed as “receiving names.”


In Transition.   Parishes in transition are newly vacant and have not begun the self-study process.
