rector search

St. Mark’s in the Bowery is in the process of searching for our next Rector. An interim priest was selected by the vestry. Rev. Dr. Allison Moore joined us in August of 2015.

The vestry formed a search committee in the fall of 2015. Over the winter, the committee created a parish survey and hosted town hall meetings to gather feedback from the congregation.

The committee, with the support of the diocese, created a profile for our church and received applications over the course of two months.

They then selected a subset of candidates and interviewed each of them via written questions, video interviews and in person interviews. Final candidates have been presented to the Bishop and will be presented to the vestry. The vestry will then elect the new rector.

We will continue to update this page with news of the process!
