Thank you for visiting the Rector Search portion of St. Mary’s website.
Located just a few blocks from the shores of Monterey Bay in the City of Pacific Grove, California, St. Mary’s by-the Sea Episcopal Church is home to a spiritually engaged and welcoming intergenerational community devoted to living out the two great commandments:
“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.’”
Our Rector, Richard Leslie, after sixteen years of service with us, retired from St. Mary’s in the fall of 2015. During this interim period, we have engaged in much conversation, communal self-reflection and prayer. We are seeking a loving, inclusive, spiritually nurturing, and collaborative leader, full of the creative energy of the Holy Spirit.
Peace be with you,
Search Committee Chair
