The vestry is thrilled to announce the selection of the discernment committee that will undertake the search process for the next rector of Grace Church. We conducted an off-site selection meeting on November 23 and began contacting candidates to confirm their interest in serving. The committee will consist of nine parishioners–two co-chairs and seven members.
The vestry is profoundly grateful to all who expressed interest in serving on the discernment committee. Arriving at a total of only nine individuals was very challenging, given that we are blessed with so many who have served our parish so well and so faithfully.We give thanks to God as we embark on the next phase of this transition period.
We will formally commission the discernment committee next Sunday, December 15, at the end of the 9:00 a.m. Eucharist. We then invite you to attend the 10: 15 forum, where the wardens will facilitate a discussion on next steps.
