Transition update, April 26th, 2017

The Applicant Review Committee (ARC) is studying applications from candidates for rector of St. Martin’s. The committee is pleased with the number and quality of applicants, and expects to recommend three to the vestry. The ARC will interview up to 10 candidates and visit up to 5.

All information about candidates must be held in strictest confidence. Applicant Review Committee members will not discuss any of the candidates, not even their number, with anyone! The Episcopal Church is a small community, and the ARC will protect our candidates’ privacy by keeping their applications absolutely confidential.

Prayer for the transition

Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding,

We thank you for setting us at tasks which demand our best.

Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory.

Guide us as we work together to call a new rector,

granting us both the courage to pursue your will and the grace to accomplish it.

Help us in all things to work together with mutual forbearance and respect.

Draw our hearts to thee, guide our minds, fill our imaginations,

And control our wills, that we may be wholly thine, utterly dedicated unto thee;

And then use us always to thy glory and the welfare of thy people.
