Congrats to my former Richmond, VA colleague and friend, Randy Hollerith!!
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Rev. Randolph “Randy” Marshall Hollerith, a priest with 25 years of experience of accomplished and creative leadership, has been named the 11th dean of Washington National Cathedral.
For the past 16 years, Hollerith has served as rector of St. James’s Episcopal Church in Richmond, Va., where he has doubled the parish budget, facilitated the growth of the largest mission program in the Diocese of Virginia, and dramatically expanded both the size and participation in St. James’s outreach ministries.
Hollerith will now lead the Cathedral in its mission to be a spiritual home for the nation and a house of prayer for all people.
“Randy has the spiritual depth, heart for ministry, and skills required to lead Washington National Cathedral into the future,” said Mariann Edgar Budde, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and interim dean of the Cathedral. “He is a strong collaborator and team builder, with a passion for the Gospel of Jesus. I look forward to working with him.”
Welcome to “Santos Woodcarving Popsicles,” my eclectic blog named after a sign in Chimayo, New Mexico which captivated me when I visited that amazing pilgrimage spot many years ago. You will find musings on scripture, God’s creation, theology, and postings with photography, and occasionally my thoughts on lacrosse. Enjoy!
