Appointment of Transition Committee (Update 12/4/19)

The Vestry of the Church of St. Paul in the Desert has created two teams from the pool of twenty-seven (27) congregant applicants to work in concert as the Transition Committee. This group represents a breadth of personalities, gifts, leadership styles, viewpoints, open hearts and minds, and commitment to our community’s mission and vision. The committee’s charge is to assist the Vestry in the process leading to the call of the ninth rector of our parish. It is the Vestry’s canonical responsibility to call a new rector. The teams are The Search Process Team and The Parish Profile Team.
