Being a member of the Call Committee is very important to the future of our church community. We will center our time together with prayer asking God for guidance in each phase as we develop and plan for our new spiritual leader for the coming years. The Call Committee will work in three phases:
In Phase 2, the Parish Profile is then used to solicit names of potential candidates from the Office of Transition Ministry and from other diocesan sources. These curricula vitae are reviewed by the Bishop and Canon to the Ordinary and then shared with the Calling Committee who then narrows the list and invites the remaining candidates to partake in a Skype interview.
Phase 3. begins when the Calling Committee determines which three candidates will be presented to the Bishop's Committee. The Calling Committee will then work together with the Bishop's Committee to welcome and schedule the two-day visit of final candidates to our community. The Bishop's Committee will elect the next Vicar and advise the Bishop who notifies the candidate of the "call".
We hope that all parishioners who are contemplating candidacy of the Call Committee will submit your application by our scheduled deadline of next Sunday, February 26th.
With God's guidance our call will reach the person who is being called by God to find us.
