Discern with Us
As the first anniversary of the Rev'd Geoffrey Hoare's arrival at St. Alban's approaches, the Vestry has decided to begin discerning whether to call him as our new Rector. Geoffrey has been serving as Priest-in-Charge under a three-year letter of agreement, which includes a process for deciding if a call should be issued.
Senior Warden Laura Ingersoll has invited parishioners to participate in the process, which she explains in detail in this letter to the Parish. The Vestry plans to vote on whether to issue a call at its regular meeting on March 21. Between now and then, the Vestry wants to hear from you in person or in any of the following ways:
- email the Vestry collectively at
- email Vestry members individually at their personal email addresses
- phone Laura Ingersoll (202/480-6132) or Junior Warden Diane Adams (202/255-6253), or any other Vestry member
The discernment process, Ingersoll reports, is full of joy and optimism and hope. As it moves forward, the Vestry wants to hear from you!
