The Transition Teams have been busy creating final drafts of both the Parish Profile and the Office of Transition Management Form. These documents will be critical as we move forward through the Rector search/selection process.  Both contain considerable, in-depth information that will help introduce our parish to future Rector candidates. After the draft documents are finalized by the Transition Teams, they will be reviewed by Vestry leadership and Parish Administration, and then passed along to the Diocese for approvals.  It is a lengthy and deliberative process. We ask for your continued prayers.

The Parish Profile and Search Process Teams


A Gift of Prayer for Transition from the Daughters of the King: Almighty and ever living God, hear our prayers for this parish family. You renewed us during Advent to receive Christ’s presence and You are preparing our parish for a renewed mission and vision. We thank you for the leadership of our interim rector, our Vestry and the members of our Transition Committee. We invite you, Holy Spirit, to guide and empower us and our Transition Committee as we begin the tasks of choosing a new rector for this parish. Grant that these servants become faithful companions to each other, to the vestry and to this Parish. We pray that you grant all of us the wisdom and discernment to choose a faithful pastor, who will help us continue to share the abundant life of Jesus Christ. This we pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
