St Edmund's Episcopal Church San Marino

Transition Update

Michael Harrigian and a team of volunteers have begun work on the Parish Profile. When the draft is complete, we will share it with the parish for discussion.

During this phase, it will be important to remain active in our parish life, not just in the transition events, but also by attending services regularly; participating in the summer socials, adult education and other parish ministries; keeping your pledges current; and sharing your questions and concerns with the Transition Committee.

Michael Harrigian is forming a Parish Profile Committee to develop the Parish Profile, which will be used by the Search Committee to help inform potential rector candidates about our parish. The Parish Profile Committee will use input from our History Day, the parish survey and related discussions at the parish meeting on November 4, along with independent research to create the profile, which will describe various aspects of St. Edmund’s, such as our history, finances, buildings and grounds, current staff, nursery school, programs, outreach, and music, as well as our parishioners, the surrounding community and our goals and aspirations as we seek our new rector. The committee will consist of around five people and will initiate its work in November with the goal to finalize the profile by February 2019. This should be an exciting project and will have a significant impact on the message we send to potential rectors. Anyone who is interested in signing up, or just in learning more,
is invited to contact Michael at or at his home phone,
(626) 441-0787. There will probably be a brief meeting of the committee before the November 4th parish meeting
Several parishioners have expressed interest in having videotaped sermons available on our website. If you are interested in leading this effort, please contact Fr. Bill. If you have a digital video camera at home that isn’t being used and you would be willing to donate it to the church, please contact Fr. Bill.
If you have any questions about transition – changes to the services, the progress we’re making or otherwise – please feel free to ask one of the Transition Committee members – Gail Rolfe, Michael Harrigian, Amy Hulick, Debra Spaulding or Alan Steinbrecher – or the Senior Warden, Ron Harrington.
