The nominating committee, in discussion with the diocese, has made the decision to extend the nominating period from June 30 to July 15. This extension to the nomination period will not have an impact on our time line for hiring a new rector as the deadline for submitting materials will remain the same, July 22nd. This was a decision based on the calendar and the possible impact of holidays and vacations. We want to make sure that we are gathering as much input and that we are publicizing the position as broadly as possible.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers as we use this time to prepare for the period of discernment that will begin after July 22nd.
