The Church of the Epiphany in Socorro NM is seeking a part time, possibly bi-vocational vicar for our 126 year-old mission. We are a small but financially secure church with no debt and substantial reserves. A vibrant and diverse congregation, we are committed to living out our Baptismal Covenant by loving God and our neighbor.
Socorro enjoys a moderate climate, and we have outdoor activities in the form of worship services, meals, pet blessings and a Palm Sunday procession. Many of our members take advantage of a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities, and even help beautify our environment through community cleanup.
Epiphany is a “Rite II” parish, using the BCP, the 1982 Hymnal, and the RCL readings. We do mix it up some with an occasional Rite I service, Anglican chant, or folk mass. Worship for us is a joyful, participatory experience, centered on our coming together at the Lord’s Table!
Epiphany is a mission with a mission—we have a small congregation of a dozen folks that meets twice monthly on Sunday afternoon in Magdalena, about 30 miles to the west. With strong roots in ranching, the village is now growing as an art center. Services here are more casual, with guitar hymns and an open forum discussion of the lessons, but still center around Eucharist and the Book of Common Prayer.
