The Very Reverend Richard Lawson (he/him)

Author: Evans Ousley | December 20, 2022

As Dean, Richard leads the cathedral as a pastor, a priest, and a teacher, sharing in the councils of the congregation and of the whole church in communion with the Bishop. Richard shepherds and works closely with Catechumenate, the Dean’s Bible Study, Faith in Action, the vestry, and the Finance, Investment, Stewardship, Arts & Architecture, Buildings & Grounds, and Grants Committees.

“As dean, I am most drawn to Saint John’s Cathedral because this is a community that says its prayers but does not take itself too seriously. I also love that the liturgy, music, and architecture are so beautiful.”
