Subject: Announcement about our new Rector
To the Parishioners at Saint Ambrose Church,
I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that the Vestry has extended an offer to a new Rector and he has answered the call to be our new Rector at Saint Ambrose Church in Foster City. The process to hire a new Rector was started when Father David was here. We had a capital campaign, and the congregation pulled together to donate funds to the cause a few years ago before Covid. Then in 2021 the Vestry formed a Rector Search Committee and they decided to update our St. Ambrose website. All this was during the pandemic and while we were not able to come to church, we were still able to gather on Zoom. They worked very hard putting together a Parish Profile and working with Father Shane and Canon Obando, to get candidates to apply for the New Rector position. Finally, the Rector candidates were put forward to the Vestry and we flew the candidates into Foster City for in-person interviews. We have made a decision and I get the honor of making the announcement to all of you. Our new Rector at Saint Ambrose Church in Foster City is:
The Rev Jason Lucas-Green
Here is a video introduction from Father Jason: St. Ambrose Welcome Video
Our new Rector The Rev Jason Lucas-Green will be starting in the month of August 2022 around the 15th of the month.
