THE CALL PROCESS October 1, 2021

The Vestry has actively begun the call process as prescribed by the Diocese. In short, this fall we are praying for Advent, celebrating Rev. Nancy, planning to interview and hire an interim rector, and doing preliminary work on the Parish Profile.

More details can be found in a letter from the Vestry found and the Diocese Protocol for a Search Process.

Additionally, you are welcome to contact any Vestry member with questions.
