As we prepare for Jim Lemler’s retirement on September 1, we are working diligently to encourage a smooth transition and demystify the process by communicating openly. Please review the FAQ’s below for your information.
In May, Lee Ann Tolzmann, the Canon for Mission Leadership of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut reviewed the transition process with the Vestry, including the steps for identifying the Interim Rector, currently underway, to the search for our new Rector. She explained that the final decision of who the Parish chooses for their clergy rests with the Vestry.
There will be numerous opportunities for parishioner involvement via one of the four Transition Teams that will be created this fall: the Discernment, Recruitment, Hospitality, and Prayer teams. Christ Church Greenwich will be assigned a Transition Consultant who will help guide the Parish through the process.
Save the date! Lee Ann Tolzmann, the Canon for Mission Leadership, will be preaching on October 15, and giving a presentation
during the 10:10 Exploration Series.
