A Parish Survey (“Survey”) was developed and distributed by the Parish Profile Committee. The purpose of the Survey is to seek input from a variety of groups and interests, including, but not limited to input from families, teens, young adults, and Day School faculty.
The Survey data will help finalize the 2021 Parish Profile, which following Vestry and Diocesan approval, will serve as important part of the recruitment package for prospective candidates’ review.
Next Steps and Timeline
Utilizing elements of the Parish Profile, the Recruiting Committee will complete a Rector Profile with desired qualities and qualifications for the position. Once approved by the Vestry, Canon to the Ordinary, Anita Braden, will post and share the recruitment package on behalf All Saints’ and the Diocese for candidates to review.
Applications will be accepted by the Diocese for a pre-designated period (usually eight weeks) and qualified candidates will be presented to the Recruitment Committee to interview and, if selected, presented to the Vestry as finalists.
The Transition Committee’s role is to anticipate, accommodate and meet needs of candidates and their families throughout the recruitment, interview and transition processes. They are also committed to supporting both the Rector and the All Saints’ community, well into the new Rector’s tenure, to help create a welcoming environment and smooth transition for all.
Thoughtful and thorough Rector Searches typically take 12 to 18 months. Your Rector Search Committee accomplished much in 2020, and we are honored and excited to continue this important work in the weeks and months ahead.
While the Holy Spirit will lead the way, our goal is to welcome the next All Saints’ Episcopal Church Rector by All Saints’ Day, November 1, 2021.
We are especially grateful for your prayers and support.
