The committee has been working during the month of July to organize visits to the parishes of the candidates for Dean and Rector.
We have successfully pared the candidates to three outstanding individuals, any one of whom would be an excellent Dean and Rector for Trinity, matching our spiritual, worship, parish and Cathedral management, and growth needs. The three parish visits will occur over three different weekends in August. Then the committee will determine which candidates should take the next step to visit us here at Trinity. It could be all three, two, or one. Our visits to their parishes, spending time with them personally, and then experiencing worship with them, will help us make that important decision.
While it would be foolish to set a firm deadline for calling our new Dean and Rector, I think we can safely say we should have a final determination for the Bishop and the Vestry to consider by early fall.
PRAYER FOR THE SEARCH
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.
