Search Committee Process

The process to find a new Dean for St. Michael’s Cathedral is nearly finished.

Canon Lauren Schoeck, Canon for Transition Ministry for the Diocese of Idaho, has been facilitating the process. She has led this process before and is a skilled leader. Click Here (pdf) for a document from Canon Schoeck about the transition process.

This is an exciting time for the Search Committee and the entire congregation to look at who we are and who God is calling us to be in the future. We will all be part of this process.

Collect for Transition

Almighty God, you have called us, as you called those who came before us, into lively and holy ministry in this Cathedral parish, to be your light in this corner of the world: in this time of change, send, we pray, your Holy Spirit to comfort and guide us, to help us discover who we are, and what we may become; as we prepare for a new shepherd of your flock, a minister in your house, grant us patience, discernment, and grace in all our uncertainties, and bless our search for one to lead us as the church you call us to be, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
