Administrative Transition

From the Dean:

At the end of this month we will be saying farewell to Kris Vieira, our intrepid Cathedral Administrator.

For the past five years, Kris has supported our shared ministry with her wisdom, skills, commitment, care and faithfulness. She is responsible for creating our rhythm of print and electronic communications, moving our administrative life onto Realm, updating office systems, expanding our online presence, and so much more. She successfully modernized our offices and coordinated our event-planning while also taking part in ministry development, teaching in the Dean’s Forum and helping me to be more effective in my ministry both within and beyond the cathedral congregation. In the midst of a global pandemic, she led the way in our adaptive move to online worship, fellowship, formation and stewardship.

In her time leading our administrative team, Kris won numerous communications awards and has contributed significantly to elevating the profile of the cathedral regionally, and church-wide. Along with Father Adam, Mother Morgan and me, she is a co-founder of the Center for Spiritual Imagination - a role in which she will continue as she moves on from her office job here.

Kris will be taking up the senior administrative and communications position at Calvary St. George’s Church in Manhattan, another inspiring Episcopal faith community that will benefit from her exceptional ministry.

Please join me in expressing gratitude to Kris for the wonderful years of service she has shared with us and wish her well for the next step of her professional journey.

Yours in Christ,


From Kris:

Dear Cathedral Family,

These past five years have been an incredible gift. For the first time in my life, I was able to say "I love my job." That is all thanks to the wonderful people I have met here. It is a rare thing these days to find such a vibrant, imaginative, and truly welcoming faith community and it was an absolute privilege to serve with all of you. I am especially grateful to Dean Sniffen for his encouragement and support at every step of the way.

I knew the day I walked through the door that this was a very special place, and I look forward to seeing what God has in store for the cathedral community in the next chapter.

I will be at services this Sunday and I hope to see some of you in person to say farewell. If not, I will surely be seeing many of you at one of the upcoming Center for Spiritual Imagination events. You will be forever in my prayers!

Grace and Peace,
