Receiving Names.   Parishes listed as receiving names have completed their self-study and are free to receive names from applicants (n.b. please carefully review the above process for submitting names).


Self-Study.   Parishes listed as in self-study are in the process of assessing needs, defining leadership, and creating their profiles. Clergy with an interest in one of these self-study parishes may contact Canon Betit but should not contact the parish search committee until the parish is listed as “receiving names.”
