Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Goings on in the Diocese of Michigan

After receiving three phone calls from individuals either telling me, or trying to confirm, the info below, I called the Diocesan Offices for the info from the 'inner sanctum'. And then I received a letter in the mail confirming the first bit of news.

St. Paul's Cathedral has elected Canon Scott Hunter (currently Canon to the Ordinary of the Diocese of Michigan) to be the next Dean of the Cathedral. Dean Bancroft retires this spring and Canon Hunter will be in place immediately (actually they will overlap by a month). As Canon to the Ordinary he is a familiar person to the Cathedral and it should make for a smooth transition.

And there is a new Canon to the Ordinary - Lisa Gray (currently Canon for Youth and Young Adult Ministries).
