Parishioners and friends of Calvary Episcopal Church are asked to nominate clergy for consideration by sending names to The Rev. Lynn Carter-Edmands, Canon for Transitions at the Diocese of Southern Ohio: or (513) 421-0311, who will contact the nominees directly.

Interested candidates must apply through the diocesan application form found at this link:

Please attach the following to the application as a PDF:

1) A cover letter directed to the Search Committee (not to me) in which you relate why you wish to consider becoming their next Rector, what it is about the position that draws you to it, what gifts and skills you will bring to this ministry, and any other information you wish to include.

2) Your updated OTM portfolio

3) Your current resume

Due to the confidential nature of the search process, we ask that all questions about the position or search process be directed to Canon Carter-Edmands, and that members of the congregation or Search Committee not be contacted directly about candidates. Our Search Committee members are required to hold confidential the identifying information of interested candidates.
