The Rector Search 

Search Committee Update

The Search Committee is actively seeking a new rector for our parish.  The Diocese of Texas has a process that it asks each parish to use when searching for a new rector.  Set out below are the steps in that process.   


The Search Committee has indicated the date the step was completed or if the step is ongoing the date the date the step was began or the date the step is scheduled to begin.  The Search Committee will update the listing below as we progress through the steps.  We will indicate the date of our update in the space below.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact either Ed Ziegler or Linda Barry. 

Parish Profile

In our search for the next Rector of Holy Comforter, we compiled a "Parish Profile" with the help of a parish-wide survey and many conversations with our clergy, vestry, and parish. This profile offers a glimpse into Holy Comforter, our hopes, our challenges, where we started and how we would like to grow.  It is our hope that it gives you a picture of who we are as a church and community. ​
