The small group meetings are completed!  Thank you to all who participated.  Wednesday, 6/21, the search committee met to compile the information gathered at the small group meetings.  We will now put the information we have gathered into a document that will be used to create Calvary's profile in the search process.

Thank you to all that completed the CAT survey! We had about 70% participation. On April 5th, the Search Committee, along with the Vestry met with Andrea Mysen and Susie Holding, from the Diocese, to go over the results of the CAT survey. Now that we have had help interpreting those results, we will be working on a summary of the results to present to the congregation. Be on the lookout for that summary and for information on future small group gatherings. Please feel free to speak with any member of the committee with any questions you might have.

The Calvary Search Committee is in the early phases of our discernment process.  We are starting the CAT survey beginning March 6 and it will be open until March 24. This survey is a tool to help make our search more effective.  We would like to be as transparent as possible with all that are interested in our journey.  If you have any questions regarding our search please feel free to contact any of the members of our team. Blessings, Calvary Search Committee Gwen O’Loughlin, Jennifer Ceplecha, Jennifer Hentrich, Jan Bruesch, Drew Nolan, Don Edyburn, Susan Vitti, and Lisa Pardue

Using your thoughtful nominations and the Vestry's prayerful discernment, God has provided a wonderful Search Committee for Calvary: an Bruesch, Jennifer Ceplecha, Don Edyburn, Jennifer Hentrich, Drew Nolan, Gwen O'Loughlin, Lisa Pardue, and Susan Vitti.  The Committee will be commissioned at the 0:1 service on January 22. After that, you can look forward to regular reports on their work. We encourage you to bring them your questions and concerns as the year goes on. They will be happy to talk with you! Please keep them and the whole search process in your prayers.
