Christ’s Church Cathedral in Hamilton, Ontario, in the Anglican Diocese of Niagara, invites applications for the position of Parish Coordinator. The Parish Coordinator is a key member of the Cathedral staff team, collaborating with the Dean, other clergy, diocesan staff and lay leaders to support the church’s mission in the Diocese of Niagara as well as in the City of Hamilton’s downtown area.
