The Vestry would like to update you on the Interim search.

The candidate who we had been in discussion with has withdrawn due to health concerns. We will continue working with the diocesan office to find other potential candidates.

Therefore, we will plan to have supply clergy for October and possibly November. 

We will keep you updated, appreciate your patience, and ask for your continued prayers
