Rector Search Logo

On November 4, 2018, we welcomed The Rev. John C. N. Hall as our  interim priest.

Father John Weatherly retired in September 2018 after 21 years as our rector. Reverends Donna Foughty and Michael Pumphrey served as our Supply Priests for the month of October.

The Discernment Committee (Rector Search Committee) is working with the Diocese and praying for the Holy Spirit to lead us as we search for St. Mark's new rector. Please pray with us for guidance and direction. We will be seeking input from the parishioners during our information gathering process.

Please pray for God’s guidance using this prayer for discernment and guidance.

Heavenly Father, we pray intently and expectantly as we search for a new rector of St. Mark’s. We ask Your help in discerning who it is that You are calling to serve. Speak to our hearts, Lord, so that we may keep a humble heart. Allow us to use the gifts that You bestowed on each of us to accomplish this important task. We pray for our future rector, his or her family, as well as our own parish family. May Your will be done in Your way. Grant us patience and understanding throughout this process. Amen
