We write to provide you with an initial status report regarding the search for the next Rector of St. Ann’s Church.
Six members of the parish, whose names are listed below, accepted a call to serve on the search committee. The committee has met a couple times, including a meeting with Canon Woodley (Canon for Ministry Support and Transition Minister for the Diocese of Long Island).
Your input will be vital to the development of our Parish profile, and we want to ensure that as many members of the St. Ann’s community as possible contribute to the process. Here are two ways that you can provide your input. First, in the next couple of weeks we plan to make available on the St. Ann's website in the Rector Search Updates section an electronic survey about St. Ann's, its future, and the qualities of our new Rector. (Paper copies of the survey will also be available for those without easy access to a computer.) In addition, the search committee and the Canon for Transition Ministry will lead a Forum (Summit) on the search process on Sunday, April 7, at 11:30 a.m. The Summit should last between 3 and 4 hours. Lunch will be provided at the start of the meeting.
Throughout this process, we will provide updates via email and in the weekly bulletin insert, as well as on the "Rector Search" page of the St. Ann's website. We welcome your prayers, engagement, support, and questions.
Susan Knoepffler, Chair
Rich Acierno, Peg Flanagan, Jackie Gandolfo, Don Hester and Gerry Pagels
Prayer for the Search Committee:
Almighty God, giver of every good gift; Look graciously on St. Ann's and so hear the prayers of the parish family as we look to you for guidance in our search for a new Rector. We pray that you will lead us a faithful pastor, who will care for us and equip us for ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
