Rector Search

 
 

St. Paul’s is actively searching for a new rector

A note from the St. Paul’s Vestry

The Transitions Officer from the Offices of the Bishop met with the Vestry and Staff at the July meeting to give us an overview of the process moving forward, now that Father Stan has announced his retirement. It is fairly simple:

1 - Celebrate Father Stan and say farewell with love and thanks (see celebration luncheon info on the home page).

2 - Establish clergy coverage with priority on 1 - upcoming liturgies, 2 - Pastoral Care for the parish family, and 3 - Staff and program planning & support. This will initially be done by our associates and deacon, supplemented by supply clergy, until our Interim is called.

3 - Welcome the ministry and services of an Interim Priest, who will work with the staff to provide full time attention to the St. Paul's parish until a new Rector is called.

4 - Discern and empower a Search Committee to work with the Offices of the Bishop to call a new Rector, once the parish has done her work establishing a profile and setting goals.

If you have any questions or concerns about this interim time for the life of the parish, please feel free to speak with any member of the Vestry.

Your prayers are appreciated.

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; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
