Update from the Rector Search Committee

The Rector Search Committee is pleased to announce that we’ve had a wonderful response to our call for applicants. We have received more than 90 applications for the position, which we will be reviewing throughout December and January. Our next task is to winnow this pool of applicants down to a list of up to twelve candidates that will be sent to the diocese for review by Canon Tammearu and Bishop Dietsche. After the Canon and the Bishop have reviewed our list, we will begin interviewing and visiting the candidates. We expect to be scheduling interviews and visits in the spring. In this Advent season of expectant waiting, we give thanks for your patience and prayers, and for the many gifted priests who have offered themselves in service to our parish. Please continue to keep the committee and the candidates in your prayers as we enter this period of discernment. If you have any questions about the search process, please feel free to speak to us at coffee hour or contact us by email at search@ascensionnyc.org.
