The committee's work continues at an active pace. Your committee members are putting in several to many hours per week on this search. We seem to enjoy working together as a group. For patient and impatient souls who have the impression that this project seems to be a long one, I commend to you the following link from the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego website, describing the process of calling a new rector: http://www.edsd.org/callingclergy/. This excellent outline describes a process of 12-18 months. Although we have had a meandering course from mid-2013 to late 2014, this committee first met in late November 2014, and has made steady progress since. Parishioners will recognize that the steps of preparation, self-study, posting of profiles, and receipt of applications have all been completed at this point.
