We are almost six months into our search process which began at the in early February when the search team provided a survey to all parish members. This information was compiled by the Search Team and the Good Shepherd Profile was placed on the National Episcopal Church employment web-site in mid-March. Since that time, we have received two applicants and are expecting a third by the end of this month. Parish members also provided the search team with the names of two priests for us to consider; both were checked with and neither were available to apply for our Rector position. It is priority of the Search Team to check out any possible names that are given to us by parish members.
The Middle and High School youth groups will be collection cans for the Calvary Food Pantry as well as cash for the banquet. Bring your cans and dried goods to Church on February 7th. There will be a collection site at the rear of the church. If you wish to donate money please note on your check that it is directed for the Banquet.
