Search Committee

In May 2022, Mother Erika Takacs left Atonement to continue her ministry in North Carolina, and one month later, Father Dan was called to be our interim rector. As we move toward finding our new rector, the Search Committee will post updates on this page. The committee will also be using our weekly e-news and a bulletin board in Montgomery Hall.

CAT survey completed; small groups scheduled

Oct. 26, 2022


The parish has completed its Congregational Assessment Tool (CAT) which has provided the initial direction for the Search Committee. More than 175 people participated in this important assessment survey. After reviewing the results with vestry and the diocesan transition team, the Search Committee is prepped for the next phase.

Each week in November, the Search Committee is scheduling four small group discussions to help us describe what we are looking for in our next rector. Sign up in the bulletin board in Montgomery Hall or using the link below. Come learn what the CAT survey told us and provide your input. Small groups will meet in the Elizabethan Room unless stairs are a problem; let us know if we need to schedule an alternate spot. 


Sign up for a small group discussion.
