January 27, 2019: Visit from the Diocese About the Rector Search

Carol oversees leadership transitions for 56 congregations, including St. Mary’s. This will be her first visit to St. Mary’s and she would like to meet as many people as possible. She will preach, visit during coffee hour briefly, and then meet with the clergy, search committee, wardens, and vestry. Come and meet Carol!


September 28, 2018: Survey of Parish Members

In order to obtain the broadest input into the search for our new rector we are asking these questions of all parish members. These questions will also be discussed after church on October 14 and 28. Please provide your input to the rector search by taking this survey. Your answers will help the search committee write a parish profile that accurately describes who we are and what we seek in a new rector. There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. Your responses can be as long as you like or as short as a single word. The final demographic questions are optional but are to help us understand how priorities vary among different segments of the parish.
