The transition to a new Rector comprises three distinct parts: celebration, interim, and search. Canon Michael Hunn, who oversees rector transitions for the Diocese of North Carolina, preached on Sunday and addressed a congregational meeting in the Great Hall following the service. Click here for a link to YouTube videos of the meeting. Starting June 21, vestry members will be available after the 10 am service for informal conversations about the rector transition process.

You can stay up to date any time by going to announcements on the home page or using the Cross Roads blog and searching for rector transition. We want you to know everything about our celebration of Stephen Elkins-Williams, the selection of an interim rector, and the new rector search process. For more transition information, check the kiosk in the Great Hall!
At its retreat in May the vestry used two prayers and decided to return to those prayers throughout the transition: The Prayer of Unknowing by Thomas Merton, and Trust in the Slow Work of God by Teilhard de Chardin. Click here to access Prayers for a Time of Transition.
