Transitioning to a new Rector

  • October 14, 2018

Greetings to all.  On Monday, October 1, your Search Committee met with Canon Massey from the Office of Transitional Ministry to provide us with an update and next steps.  Therefore, we want to update you as well.  We have received a good number of applicants for the rector position, and will continue receiving names through October 7.  We will be reviewing applicants for the two weeks after and will be meeting again in mid-October to discuss and decide whom to interview.  The first round will be remote video interviews followed by face-to-face interviews in late October and early November.  We hope to call a new rector early in January.  As you may imagine, this will be an extremely important and busy time for the members of the committee.  We request your prayers for the Holy Spirit to guide us in discerning God’s will.  And, we ask you to remember the words of Julian of Norwich, “…all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.”  Blessings to all from your search committee: Carol Rippetoe, Sandy Wheat, Ed Watson, Ann Jones, Scott Houghton, Jackie Okoth, Edwin Thompson, George Bang, Dee Stewart, and Mike Bailey.

O Holy Spirit, Lord, and Giver of Life, who hast planted and sustained St. Timothy’s Church and School in thy virtues of faith, hope, and love; grant us thy grace to discern the Father’s will in peace and trust, that we may call a new shepherd to guide us into our future as faithful witnesses and servants of our Lord Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Father Almighty, one God, world without end.  Amen.

We welcomed Fr. Remer to St. Timothy’s Church at our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper on February 13th.  His first day of services was Ash Wednesday when he celebrated 4 services for both our parish family and the St. Timothy’s School Middle School classes.  Sunday, February 18th we celebrated his first set of Sunday services with us.

Please join us as Fr. Remer leads Stations of The Cross every Wednesday evening in Lent at 6:00 pm then stay for dinner and discussion at our annual Lenten Soup Suppers beginning at 6:30 pm.

It is with great honor the Vestry of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church Raleigh, North Carolina, announces the calling of the Reverend Doug E. Remer as Interim Rector.  After spending a weekend with Fr. Remer and his wife, Sterling, the Vestry voted unanimously to call Fr. Remer to St. Timothy’s to lead us during this time of transition and discernment.

A graduate of Rutgers College and The General Theological Seminary, Fr. Remer is a retired priest who, during his almost forty years of pre-retirement ministry, served in the Diocese of North Carolina at parishes in Raleigh and Tarboro, as well as parishes in Utica, New York; Atlanta, Georgia; and Tampa, Florida. He has also served as a priest at two parishes with Episcopal schools. More recently, he has served as an Interim Rector in North Carolina parishes located in Asheboro and Cashiers.

In his letter to our parish expressing his interest, Fr. Remer stated he never views his work as an Interim Rector as that of imposing his own will on the parish, but, rather, assisting the parish to discern God’s will for its future ministry and witness.

Having had the pleasure of spending time with Fr. Remer over the last two weekends, I can tell you I feel a sense of relief, thankfulness, excitement, and hope for the future of St. Timothy’s Church and School.

Fr. Remer will be joining us on February 13, 2018, for our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper.  He will begin conducting services on Ash Wednesday.   I am personally thrilled that you all will have the opportunity to meet him soon.

Above is a family photo taken at the recent Christening of his granddaughter, Josephine.  We want to extend a warm and loving welcome the Fr. Remer and his entire family.

May God continue to bless St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church and School!

Faithfully,
Cathy Elsea
Senior Warden
