The new rector search
The result of the congregational consultation was that the majority would be prepared to accept a female Rector. Women will therefore be considered as candidates for the post.
The closing date for applications is the end of February; Please also remember we are all responsible for praying for the new rector. Give thanks for the cv´s we have already received and pray that the selection committee may be able to discern God´s leading.
You may find the following prayer to be useful:
Prayer for the Election of a Minister
Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for this parish, that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
A summary of the Council meeting held on 24th January is available to read HERE.
We need candidates from the Cathedral congregation for:
- Cathedral Council (5 Council members and a people´s warden)
- Diocesan Synod (to be held 21st & 22nd April)
Please pray about whether you could serve in this way; only those who are Associates of the Cathedral are eligible for these posts.
Thank you to all those who contributed items for those affected by the flooding etc.
