New Clergy Announcement

Dear friends:

A few sentences into the letter, I knew I was hearing from someone who might have a lot to offer Trinity Cathedral. I am happy to announce that the conversations that grew out of that letter I received in late May have led to more conversations, emails, meetings, and on-site interviews. Those interviews included lay leaders and staff. All that scrutiny, along with sustained prayer, have led to my calling the Rev’d Dr. Andrew Grosso to be Trinity’s next Canon for Formation and Canon to the Dean.

Andrew first impressed me by his extensive experience. He has served as clergy staff for a Cathedral, as a rector of a parish, a dean for a diocesan school for ministry training, and an associate seminary dean. While he has had ten years of experience in full-time parish ministry, his other involvements have given him further depth in strategic visioning, creating well-planned programs, offering stirring teaching, and supervising staff. I have never read a letter of interest from a candidate that did a better job keying in on how one’s experience might connect with the needs and opportunities of a position.
