It is with great joy and anticipation that we announce that our Vestry, having accepted unanimously the recommendation from the Search Committee, has called the Rev. Canon Nathaniel Katz to be the Ninth Dean of Christ Church Cathedral, and he has enthusiastically accepted the call. Nat and his wife, Shelly, will be joining us from Paris, France, where he is serving as Canon at the American Cathedral in Paris. Prior to this assignment, he served as Associate Rector at All Saints, Beverly Hills in California. Nat studied at Harvard Divinity School and began his work in ministry at Harvard’s Memorial Church.
The Search Committee was also unanimous in their recommendation of Nat as our new Dean: he is inspiring and challenging as a teacher and preacher; he has a passion for urban ministry, and a heart for ministering to migrants and underserved communities; and he has shown a demonstrated ability to find creative ways to draw his parishioners into deeper spiritual formation and worship. As Nat got to know us, he was drawn to the Cathedral because our values and focus are so well aligned with his own. We are looking forward to welcoming Nat and Shelly to the Cathedral in late September as we begin our Fall 2023 programs.
We are immensely grateful to the congregation for your encouragement, prayers, and patience throughout the search process, as we are to The Very Reverend Gary Jones for his leadership.
Thanks be to God,
Linnet Deily & Guy Hagstette
