A TRANSFORMING TRANSITION
The Vicar Search Committee has begun the process of developing the questions to dialogue with the candidates for Vicar at St. Brigit’s. Last week, using the developed questions, the group held a mock interview with a local priest from our Diocese. This was a most valuable experience and resulted in a reassessment of some questions and clarity about the actual process of interviewing Vicar applicants.
The Missioner for Transition, Canon Vanessa Stickler Glass, closed the applications on February 17th and notified the Search Committee that we have received a number of applications both from within our Diocese and other Dioceses around the country. Several people have asked how many applicants have applied and in keeping with Diocesan policy, I am unable to say an exact number….however, we have been blessed with applications from very qualified people.
By March 1, as the Administrator, I will begin establishing Zoom interview dates with the candidates, contacting them and the Search Committee will begin Zoom interviews as soon as dates are confirmed. We anticipate being able to invite a candidate or candidates to St. Brigit’s for in person interviews after Easter.
Please keep the Search Committee in your prayers. Also, remember that they are the members of the Bishop’s Committee Community and are continuing in their responsibilities inherent in that organization. They are working diligently and putting in many hours for all of us….
