ECWK is serving as a "sabbatical site" in which a priest offers Sunday services at St. Paul's and St. John's, and emergency pastoral care in exchange for living in a furnished vicarage (which was recently refurbished), and having a vehicle to drive. This ministry began in January 2012. ECWK prefers that priests stay for at least two months. For more information on serving short-term with ECWK, visit the Diocesan website HERE.
