Thank you for visiting the Rector Search portion of Calvary Episcopal Church's website.
Located near the historic center of Richmond, Texas, and just 30 miles south of Houston, Calvary Episcopal Church is a church centered on worship, Christian formation, and community outreach. It has been an integral part of the Richmond community and greater Fort Bend County for 160 years. Please travel throughout this website to learn more about us, see our smiling faces, and know that we welcome all who enter to worship and embrace the teachings of Jesus Christ.
You will also learn about Calvary Episcopal Prep, which since 1956, has been educating students with an accelerated curriculum and a Christian focus on the three "R's": Reverence for God, Respect for Others and Responsibility for Self.
We have been engaged with the transition process since The Rev. Paul Wehner, Rector at Calvary for eight years, retired on July 1st. We are blessed that The Rev. Lecia Brannon, Locum Tenens, and The Rev. Nancy Wilkes, Deacon, remain with us to guide us spiritually and to provide pastoral care.
The Parish Survey closed on Friday, July 26. The response rate was very high at 79%, and the survey results very positive. The Vestry and Parish Profile Committee met with HolyCow!Consulting to discuss the interpretation of the results and is close to completing the Parish Profile. Nominations have also closed for the Search Committee, and the Vestry will be naming the Search Committee at the end of August.
If you are interested in more information about becoming a candidate for Rector, contact
The Rev. Blake Rider, Transition Minister, The Diocese of Texas.
Peace be with you,
