St. Aidan's is a parish in transition. Following the retirement of our long-term rector, we have entered into a period of self-study, considering where we have been, who we are now, and what God is calling us to be for the future. In the year ahead, with the guidance of our interim rector, we will create a parish profile and enter into a search for a new rector who will share and help shape the vision we discern for our future. In this process, we follow the Diocese of Virginia process described in the link below.
A Prayer in the time of Transition
Gracious and loving God, whose hands shape our lives and the world around us:
Open our hearts to an ongoing awareness of your presence as we seek and select a Rector for St. Aidan's Church.
Bless our Discernment Committee with clear eyes, wise minds, and open hearts in their search for a priest who will love and serve you and this congregation.
Bless and strengthen the St. Aidan’s community as this journey empowers us to grow in love and understanding for you and for one another.
Support clergy who hear your call to discernment and surround their families with your care, for even now you are preparing our future pastor.
And lead us all by your grace to a deepening understanding of our mission and ministry so that together we might grow more and more into the community Christ calls us to be.
