Search Process Update: 10-7-2022

The search committee is composed of 8 parishioners. We thank the committee for their efforts. We have an additional 4 parishioners who will join us as we get closer to determining a call. We thank all for their service.

The Office of Transition Ministry form has been completed and turned into the Diocese of Albany. St Andrew’s is officially listed as “In Transition”.

An advertisement has been placed on the website of the Episcopal News Service, the news outlet for Episcopal Church in the USA, and our listing is included in the openings on The Episcopal Church’s database. These are postings for candidates outside of the diocese.

The Committee is currently working on a draft Parish Profile which will eventually be posted on our website. Our thanks to the 44 parishioners who contributed to this via participation in our 2 roundtable discussion sessions.

Throughout this process, the Vestry has been informed of our progress.
More to come.

A prayer for the search process:

Benevolent God, guide the Search Committee and people of St. Andrew’s as we journey together in search of a new rector. Grant us patience to listen and wisdom to understand each other and ourselves. Equip us with open minds and truthful hearts. Amen.
