A little over a year ago, Saint John’s Cathedral entered a time of transition between the departure of one dean and the arrival of another. Fr. Patrick Malloy has been your temporary shepherd thus far. And now I have the privilege of being your temporary shepherd for the remainder of the journey of transition. Your wardens, vestry, and other parish leaders along with Bishop O’Neill and the diocesan staff have extended generous hospitality, for which Gay and I give thanks.
