This week marks the culmination of an extraordinary amount of work by a large number of people. Many of you participated in last fall's Cathedral Profile Survey and in the Stewardship receptions to give us feedback on your visions for the Cathedral. The Profile Committee worked diligently to shape those results into a cohesive statement about who we are and what we do. The statement then went to Chapter for review and was further refined and polished by the Cathedral Profile Review committee and many members of the Cathedral staff. The Cathedral posted the CAT survey online and a huge number of you willingly filled it out. While all this was going on, the Search Team was drafting and editing our job posting portfolio for the National Church's Office of Transitional Ministry (OTM) website.
This week, the calling process for the fourth Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral officially began. The OTM portfolio went "live" last Wednesday and our Cathedral's search page is up and running. Visit the website and track our progress at:
On the website you can read the Cathedral Profile, see the results of our various surveys, and track the entire process as it unfolds. If you know someone who you think would make a great Dean, the application and nomination process are online - or you can just send their information to me and the Search committee will send them a letter inviting them to consider applying.
Please feel free to ask questions and send comments! I look forward to hearing from you during what is bound to be a very exciting time for us all.
Laurie Gunn, Search Committee Chair
