Person Specification
The Plympton Team Ministry is at an exciting stage in its development and there is great scope for the development of our Mission and Ministry.
We seek a priest who is:

  • A prayerful person, with a ministry based in the discipline of prayer, the Sacraments and study.
  • A pastor, with a heart for all and with the ability to reach out and form positive relationships in the wider community.
  •  A leader, who will balance effective leadership with a passion for collaboration.
  • A teacher, with the ability to inspire and lead others into greater understanding of God, the Bible and the life of the Church.
  • A person with a love and understanding of Liturgy. It is important that the person appointed feels comfortable with the catholic tradition at Plympton St. Maurice. They should also be confident in developing new patterns of worship across the Team.

This Diocese is aware that those from black and minority ethnic groups and women are currently under-represented amongst its clergy and welcomes applications from these clergy, desiring to embody a more diverse ministry.
