10/8/20SEARCH PROCESS RESUMES: 
The Vestry and the Nominating Committee had a joint meeting to re-initiate the search process. Shortly, the Nominating Committee will begin receiving materials from those interested in entering discernment about becoming the next rector of Holy Spirit. It is a very exciting time! Please pray for the members of the Nominating Committee as they enter this new phase of discernment on our behalf.


Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for this parish, that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
