As you know, Mo. Cooper will be retiring on January 15, 2021. COVID presents us with real problems in working out how to find a new Priest-in-Charge. For example, how would we even begin to interview an interim priest?
But we are incredibly fortunate! Fr. Mayer offered to step up for one year to serve as Acting Priest-in-Charge, which we hope will get us past the worst of the pandemic. Mo. Cooper and he met with Nora Smith, Canon for Transition Ministry at the diocese, who approved this plan.
Your vestries met Wednesday night and concurred, with the belief that this would offer our best chance to provide continuity in these extraordinary circumstances.
You will be getting more information as time goes on and please feel free to ask us if you have questions or concerns.
Sue Monroe, Carl Gonsalves, and Tamsen Hernandez
