Upon the recommendation of the dean search committee, last evening the vestry of Christ Church Cathedral unanimously elected the Rev. Owen C. Thompson as the next dean. The appointment was also affirmed by Bishop Kenneth L Price, Jr.
If he looks kind of familiar, Thompson is the son of late Russelle Cross Thompson and the late Rt. Rev. Herbert Thompson Jr., the eighth Bishop of Southern Ohio. He was ordained to the priesthood at Christ Church Cathedral in 2003 and has spent the last eighteen years in parish ministry in the Dioceses of Long Island and New York. He currently serves as Rector of Grace Church, Nyack. Thompson will begin his ministry at Christ Church Cathedral in early September.
