Update from Hilary West, chair of the Rector Search Committee
The Rector Search Committee held an organizational meeting on Sunday, March 18.
On Tuesday, April 3, the Committee will meet with The Rev. Canon Paula Clark of the Diocese of Washington to discuss the search process and how the Diocese can support the Rector Search Committee as we are on the journey to find a new rector.
The Committee will meet again on Wednesday, April 11 at 6:30 p.m. At the March 18 organizational meeting, the Committee agreed to meet weekly on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Going forward, the Rector Search Committee will keep parishioners apprised of its activities here periodically. Please stay tuned as we will be soon looking to engage parishioners to solicit thoughts and feedback as we look to assess where we have been, where we are, and where we would like to go as a parish in the future with a new rector. Your feedback and participation will be crucial.
