In April the Profile Committee completed and submitted the St. Margaret’s Profile to the Diocese for Bishop Rickel’s approval. At that time and in view of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bishop suspended all rector search processes across the diocese.
In October, the Bishop notified the parish leadership and the Profile Committee that we could resume our work. The Profile committee commenced with reviewing the Profile and making changes to account for the current pandemic situation and adding a section “Resilience in the Time of Pandemic” to explain how we, as a parish, have navigated services from being on Zoom to our current Live Streaming platform, as well as continued “activities” during these past months. The Profile was resubmitted and has been approved by Bishop Rickel.
The Profile will be posted on the National Episcopal Church’s Office of Transition Ministry website through the end of December 2020. Potential Rector candidates will submit applications to the Diocese of Olympia for review. After the position posting has closed and the Diocese has completed its review, names of potential candidates will be provided to the Search Committee.
This concludes the work of the Profile Committee: Shauna Backus, Andrea Feist, Mary Feltrup, David Hoffmann, Conrad Lee, Ed Leonard, and Davindia Steele, with Diocesean Consultant Paula Franck.
