Rector Search

After 17 years of devoted ministry to St. Thomas, Rector Wendy M. Smith, retired at end of August 2013. As is customary with a change in spiritual leadership, the Vestry appointed a committee to conduct a search for an interim rector.

Robert L. Keim was chosen to assume a rector’s day-to-day responsibilities and to fulfill the vital role of guiding the parish through a period of transition while preparing us to receive a new permanent rector.

In December, a rector search committee consisting of 12 church members was formed, and a chairperson and non-voting Vestry liaison were selected to begin the discernment process to identify a permanent rector for St. Thomas. This process can take up to 18 months.
