Már korábban is megosztottam a Kanadai Magyar Hírlap hasábjain olyan helyi álláslehetőségeket, amelyek esetleg kanadai olvasóink számára is érdekesek lehetnek. Most egy hitképzési és ifjúsági programokért felelős koordinátort keres az ottawai római katolikus Szent József Egyházközség. Az új munkatárs teljes időben dolgozna, tehát heti 37,5 órát, angol nyelvű munkakörnyezetben. Az éves kezdő fizetési skála bruttó 38 ezer dollár és 42 ezer dollár között mozog, a pontos összeg a sikeres pályázó eddigi szakmai tapasztalatainak a függvénye.

A belvárosi Szent József Egyházközséget 1856-ban alapították a Szeplőtelen Szűz Missziós Oblátusai. A progresszív és befogadó egyházközség missziója a társadalom peremén élők felkarolása, a szociális igazságosság elvének követése és az elesettekkel való szolidaritás.

Az alábbiakban az angol nyelvű álláspályázat anyagát olvashatják.
