Dean Search Committee Update

By | , , ,

Posted Sept. 12, 2017

The Dean Search Committee thanks the more than 150 members who participated in the congregational meetings. The number of people who contributed enthusiastic and thoughtful comments continues to show what an involved and caring community Trinity is. We also received terrific responses from a survey sent to clergy and wardens throughout the diocese.

We are drafting the parish profile, which will be a webpage available on Trinity’s website. A lot of the information gathered during the congregational meetings has been incorporated in the Cathedral’s profile. We expect to have the profile completed in October, at which time we will be ready to accept dean candidate applications and resumes. We are also developing a current job description for the dean position, which will be distributed to interested applicants.

Continue to hold the Dean Search Committee in your prayers.

Dean Search Congregational Meetings

By | , , ,
The Search Committee has scheduled a series of small group meetings to be held in June and July to gather congregational input. These meetings are an integral part of the search process, as outlined by Search Committee Chair David Cratty, “As you know, the Dean Search process has four phases: congregational assessment; the search; the election/appointment of a new dean; and the welcome of the new dean.

We are just in Phase One, the congregational assessment where we are having discussions about who we are as Trinity.  In many ways, this is the most important phase and it is important that you be heard.”
To that end, we are scheduling small group congregational meetings at Trinity on the following dates:
Sunday, June 11, 9 a.m. — RSVP
Tuesday, June 13, 6 p.m. — RSVP
Sunday, July 9, 9 a.m. — RSVP
Tuesday, July 25, 6 p.m. — RSVP

Please RSVP for the meeting of your choice
so that we can organize small groups to allow
good exchange.
