From the Search Committee’s Chair

With the retirement of our Dean, the Very Reverend Tracey Lind, we begin the search for a new Dean. Finding a new Dean will take time and patience as we discern who we are as a cathedral congregation, as a cathedral in the city, and as a cathedral in the wider church.

The vision of the Dean Search Committee is for this process to be inclusive, thoughtful, and thorough, guided by the Holy Spirit. The search committee will soon invite the participation of the congregation to assist with our discernment. There will be multiple ways (in person, written, electronic) to share ideas.

As we move forward, we will be sharing information periodically about our progress and asking for your continued participation.

If at any time you have questions or comments about the process, please feel free to reach out to anyone on the Search Committee.

May we all remain prayerful as we begin our work in earnest.

David Cratty
Chair, Dean Search Committee
