Trinity Cathedral is pleased to announce that The Rev. Dr. Paul L. Gaston, III is Trinity Cathedral’s new acting dean effective March 1, 2017.

“We are so pleased to have Dr. Gaston as Trinity’s acting dean,” said Amy Wentz, Senior Warden for Trinity Cathedral. “Throughout his 27-year ministry, he has served in an interim capacity with notable success. This, plus his exceptional pastoral skills and administrative experience, will assure a successful transition while Trinity Cathedral searches for its new permanent dean.”

The Rev. Dr. Paul L. Gaston, III comes to Trinity Cathedral from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Akron, where he was priest associate. Previously, he had served several churches in the Diocese of Ohio including St. Mark’s, Canton; Christ Church, Hudson; St. John’s, Cuyahoga Falls; and St. John’s, Youngstown.

Dr. Gaston has been ordained for 27 years, serving in Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio as a “bi-vocational,” balancing ministry in the Church with work in higher education. A former provost at Kent State University, he is currently the university’s Trustees’ Professor, teaching English literature and higher education administration. He will retire from this position in May.
