ONE LAST THIING...
Last year we learned that Elaine Mahoney named St. Andrew’s in her will. I’m happy to announce that her generous donation of $25,000 has started to come in. We will surely put Elaine’s gift to good use maintaining our aging building.
Not only is this being good opportunity to count our blessing but it’s also a good time to look at our own end of life plans. If you haven’t already done so please consider including St. Andrew’s as a beneficiary in your 401k, life insurance, will, etc. $25,000 makes a big difference to a little church like ours. Blessings Elaine!
"Summin’ Up the Search”
I cannot express the pride and thanks I feel for the work that has been done by our Search/Interview Committee. Although we sometimes feel we should be moving more quickly, Kelly O’Connell assures me we are on the right track and moving at a faster than expected pace.
We have narrowed our list of possibilities to two individuals. I will just share that much for now as Kelly has warned that the committee must feel no pressure in either rushing the process or choosing one individual over the other.
As I have mentioned before, we are offering our new rector a half-time position with ten hours being spent on our spiritual needs and the other ten hours working as our Program Coordinator. We are expecting our new rector to use our rectory as well. All applicants are aware of these necessities and are on board.
The Search Committee will keep our congregation completely in the know. We are so very happy that we have found ourselves in the position of having “choice”. We know what a warm and caring place St. Andrew’s is, but it’s nice when someone outside our circle notices!
Our Interview Committee includes Bob Gregory, Paula Sullivan, Olivia Davis, Yours Truly, Jane Taylor and Mike Collins. If you have questions, please feel free to pull one of us aside. (Remembering questions surrounding the finalists are off limits for now.)
