Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for this parish that we may receive a faithful pastor who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries as we work together to align our lives with God’s love, justice and compassion. Amen.

  • New Search Committee News - Latest Update

    June 20, 2017

    Before the Vestry can announce the call of a new rector to the congregation, some business must be completed. The final steps of our search process include writing a Letter of Agreement with the new rector and notifying the diocese,  our parish, and the new rector's current parish of the acceptance of our Call. Dotting the "i"s and crossing the "t"s are not just the culmination of the search, but they represent the beginning of a new ministry and the foundation of our relationship with our new rector. Confidentiality and trust have been integral to the process since the beginning, and are no less important now. As excited as we are to learn who our new leader will be, we also must appreciate that another parish will be losing a beloved priest. We are deeply saddened that our interim time with Mother Judith is ending and so grateful for all she has done for us in just a year and a half, which helps put perspective on what will be happening at the parish on the other end of our search. Please take this time to pray for the members of the other parish who in the next weeks will be learning that a cherished ministry will be ending and a new journey lies ahead for them.

    Ever living God, we pray for the life of the parish in transition as they learn of the forthcoming departure of their rector and begin the search process. May they continue to be guided by your love and strengthened in their mission to serve you through ministry, fellowship, and worship. Give them grace to follow where you lead them and grant them peace. Amen
