I write to share with you a brief update on our search process. The Vestry has called our next Rector and we expect to announce specific information in early August. The Letter of Agreement is being finalized, and the new Rector will announce the departure to his/her current parish by early August, thus permitting us to share details with you. We expect the new Rector to be in place in mid-September. We can’t wait to introduce our ninth Rector to you; but please be patient!

I also write to express our deepest gratitude for the dedication of the Search Committee members in completing their work. Skillfully led by Nancy P. and Diane G., the Committee provided us with very strong and very different finalists.

During the month of June, the Vestry spent two days with each finalist and committed to many hours of meetings. The deliberation process was thoughtful, prayerful and collaborative, keeping to the goal of finding the best new leader for our parish at this time and for many years to come.

Please keep our new Rector and our parish in your prayers!

Robin Ingram, Senior Warden

The Search Committee has now completed our work. After months of talking, interviewing, reading, listening, researching and praying we are done with our mission. On Wednesday night we gave the Vestry and Wardens the names of our three final candidates-any one of whom we would joyfully welcome as our next rector. We are extremely thankful to all members of the committee who worked every week since October to finalize the list.

Our sincere thanks to the Parish for giving us the room to do our work and, more importantly for letting us know what matters to you as you think about our future.

In the end, we were in agreement on our final three candidates. The vestry may now have the most difficult task of all: choosing between amazing, well-qualified and yet unique candidates will not be easy. The final candidates will be visiting Larchmont in the month of June; we continue to hope our new rector will be here in September!

Please hold the Vestry and the candidates in your prayers as you have prayed for us.
