The Search Committee is prayerfully seeking the following gifts and skills in our next Rector

Pastoral Care: a person who understands the importance of a clergy-connection to all members of the congregation and extends compassion, empathy, and spiritual guidance.

Leadership: a strong communicator, mediator, and collaborative leader who will reforge connections within the parish community as we move forward post-Covid. Visionary: a rector who leads the parish in discerning how to best use the abundant resources of St. Mary’s to pursue God’s work in our parish and in our community.

Homilist: an articulate, knowledgeable, and theologically-sound preacher who inspires spiritual growth by connecting God’s Word to the personal experiences of parishioners.

Liturgist: a rector who values the varied liturgical traditions of the Episcopal Church yet is prepared to draw on alternative sources to create a variety of worship experiences. (new website under construction!)
