Letters of Agreement and Supporting Documents

All parochial clergy—both priests and deacons—should have Letters of Agreement (LOA) with the parishes for which they regularly serve.

St. Anne’s Episcopal Church, a pastoral-sized parish in Warsaw Indiana, is eagerly seeking its next rector. Nestled in the heart of Indiana’s lake country, Warsaw has a flair for blending the care of community one expects in a small town with the range of cultural opportunities one expects from a city. St. Anne’s seeks a rector who will reflect this ethos, engaging both young and old through active involvement in faith-sharing and outreach ministries, energizing of the laity for diversity in leadership and facilitation of healthy discussions of divisive topics, so that together we might find new ways of supporting each other and actively serving God.
