Rector Search

Our search committee has worked so diligently and prayerfully over this past year and we have now completed our parish profile for posting in our rector search process. We are so grateful to all who have participated and done the “good work” to keep our transition process moving forward with such great faith, strength, and community as we look forward to our future.

We thank all who participated in our survey. Your involvement is crucial in our search process.

We encourage you to take the time to review the documents below. The information is extremely valuable. The more you know, the more insightful we can all be during our upcoming group meetings, empowering us to ask the right questions and have meaningful discussions that will then help us to form a detailed profile to post for our rector search.

Below you will find two links as follows:

In closing, we share our Search Committee prayer for October 2019:

Almighty God, look graciously on the people of St Edward’s, as You have done so magnificently in the past, during our last search.

Enfold us in Your love as we move along Your guiding pathway.

The truth and inspiration of the Holy Spirit sustain our hearts and minds in our search.

The hands of Jesus Christ hold ours as we sojourn towards welcoming our new rector.

Nourish those who are moved to contact us, with faithful and discerning hearts.

We pray that our eventual call will fulfill God’s plan for our shared life at St Edward’s.


Your St. Edward’s Search Committee,
