Transition is the time between a rector's announcement of departure to the celebration of New Ministry. This time includes everything from discernment and prayer to recruitment and celebration.
OUR TRANSITION TEAMS:
Patti Kay - Secretary
Bob Osborne - Consultant
Bob Pitzschler - Chair
Sam Sutter - Chaplain
The entire congregation
Parish wide discernment sessions were held at three separate meetings, the results of which are available below. The Discernment Team is now involved in developing the Parish Profile. The Profile, which uses information from the discernment meeting results as well as other resources, will have several sections - all of which will be available on-line through the website. The sections will be: Trinity's Involvement in God's Mission; A listing of the Recruitment Team; A letter of invitation to a prospective Rector; A listing of ministries within the parish (Inreach); A listing of ministries outside of the parish (Outreach); A listing of the Vestry; A listing of the Staff; A copy of the Annual Report; The History of Trinity; A description of our property; and a listing of links to various institutions in the neighborhood.
Oh God, you know us better that we know ourselves. Guide us throughout our time of transition. Empower each one of us to use our unique gifts in ministry, to share openly and honestly our thoughts, to respect the opinions of others, and to encourage humility, patience, and joy. Instill in us a vision of the Church's family; that, guided by your Holy Spirit, we will be united in love and joyfully accomplish this mission, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
