I am pleased to announce we have engaged an interim rector to serve at St. Paul’s while our Search Committee seeks a settled rector for our parish.
The Rev. C. Neal Goldsborough has agreed to serve as our interim rector. He has recently retired as the rector of Christ Church in Pensacola, Florida, where he served that large parish and day school since 2008. He has deep roots in Virginia and will be making his retirement home here in Charlottesville. We are very fortunate to have a priest with his experience in parish ministry to help guide us in this time of transition. See the bulletin board in the parish hall for more biographical information and a photograph.
Please join me in welcoming Neal and his wife, Carol, to the St. Paul’s community. Neal will begin his time with us as interim rector on December 1.
