New Rector Search

In August 2018, Fr. Rob announced his call to become the Dean of St. Matthew’s Cathedral in Dallas, Texas. The parish celebrated his ministry and that of his family on his last Sunday, October 14.  Since his departure, we have been praying for our future rector and following the Diocese of Texas' guidelines/process for a New Rector Search.  

Please pray with us: 

Almighty God, giver of every good gift:  Look graciously on St. Dunstan's, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for this parish, that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ out Lord. AMEN.

The Rector We Seek - Parish Profile 

Are you the Rector we seek?

Our Parish Profile serves as a starting point for discerning the characteristics of the rector we seek.  

We pray that you will prayerfully consider our parishioner’s needs, desires, and future. We pray that in the stillness, God will speak to you about your talents and abilities as it relates to St. Dunstan’s. 

If you would like to nominate a new rector candidate, please fill out the New Rector Nomination form and return it in a sealed enveloped marked "Search Committee".  The envelope can be left in the Mace Room mail closet in the "Search Committee" mail slot.  Nominations due by Sept. 30th.
