July 2023


Hello everyone and I hope that you are enjoying your summer so far. This will be a shortened column this month due to my schedule and many responsibilities right now. We will have 2 Holy Eucharist services and 3 Liturgy of the Word services in July. It has been very difficult to find extra supply Priests over the summer but we are very grateful to Father Brown, who will continue to supply for us on 2 Sundays per
month. We will also continue to have coffee hours after church on the 2nd and 4th Sundays.

Our Interview Committee for our Priest in Charge search has been busy. By the time you are reading this you will have received information about our Parish Self Study survey, which is a required part of the process. I again strongly encourage everyone to participate in this important survey. This is one way that you each can really help out as we pursue our goal of a new full time Priest in Charge for St. Paul’s. The Interview Committee will meet with Holy Cow Consulting once the survey periodis done and they will interpret the data, as well as provide a report. We are also working on a Parish Profile and will be doing some additional steps prior to the Transition Office at the Diocese beginning to recruit suitable candidates. We will keep you updated as this process moves along. Please keep our church in your prayers at this time as we continue the process of finding the best person to be our new Priest in Charge.

Kim Bohler, Senior Warden
