  • New Search Committee News - Latest Update

    March 28, 2017


    The Search Committee visitations and the Oxford Document Background Checks all have been completed. Next, the Search Committee will decide which candidates to invite to visit Calvary sometime after Easter. In preparation for the candidates' visits, the Committee is working on a schedule of meetings and tours for their time in Williamsville and Western New York.


    At the end of the month, Matt Lincoln, the newly called Rector of Trinity, Buffalo, will meet with the Committee and the Vestry to explain the transition process from the rector's point of view, as we continue to seek input and advice from those in our diocese who have experience with the Search process.


    Please prayerfully consider your ability to help fund our Search expenses and imagine how welcoming it would be to our new rector for 100% of our congregation to participate in this effort. If you have questions about the Search budget, please contact Co-Chairs Janet Newall and Jim Waack.


    Prayer for New Ministry:

    Dear Lord, You have given us all that we need to do Your will. May we have the wisdom and patience in these final months of our search to follow the path You have chosen for us. And we pray for all our candidates, that they will hear Your call to their next ministries, where they will continue to spread the Gospel and grow Your kingdom. Amen.
