Sharing our story with our future rector

For months, members of the St. Paul’s community have heard about the Discernment Committee’s work on our Portfolio — the document churches in our position use (along with our web sites, of course) to introduce ourselves to potential rector candidates. In addition a range of vital statistics about our parish, the Portfolio includes thoughtful — and we hope, revealing — answers to probing questions that will introduce us to rector candidates and help us start a productive conversation with our future leader.

Several printed copies of this document were shared in the Great Hall earlier this month, and now here’s a copy for online viewing. From what we hear, potential candidates are reading this Portfolio now, so we look forward to beginning to discuss it with several of them whose names are forwarded to us in the coming weeks.
