Dean of Chicago Cathedral Appointed Dean of York Minster

Dean of Chicago Cathedral Appointed to be Dean of York Minster

The Very Revd Dominic Barrington, Dean of St James Cathedral in the Diocese of Chicago of the Episcopal Church USA, has been appointed to become the next Dean of York Minster.

Barrington has been at his current post in Chicago for the last seven years.  

In response to the announcement of his appointment, Barrington said, 

“While I am honoured and overjoyed to be entrusted with such a major responsibility, I am also, of course, saddened that this news means that my time at St. James Cathedral is drawing to a close. After discussion with the wardens and my senior colleagues here, we have decided that on my return from sabbatical at the end of August, I will continue in post here until the end of October, and that my final Sunday at St. James will be 30 October.

“Obviously, this news also means that Alison will be resigning as the Director of Children’s Ministry. To allow Benedict and Linus to start the forthcoming academic year at their new school, Alison and they will be leaving Chicago at the end of this month, to ensure that the boys’ transition is as easy as possible. Plans are already in hand to find a successor for Alison, and ensure continuity in our ministry to our youth and children. I am pleased to say that although they will be moving to York in a couple of weeks, Alison, Benedict and Linus will be able to spend the last week in October back here in Chicago, so that the four of us will have the opportunity of making a proper farewell to everyone.”

The post at York Minster will mean a return to the Church of England as opposed to a first experience.  Barrington served his curacy in Mortlake and East Sheen in the Diocese of Southwark.  He served twenty years in the Church of England prior to being appointed Dean of St James Cathedral, Chicago in 2015.

The Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell said: “Dominic’s extensive experience of parish, chaplaincy  and Cathedral ministry will be such a blessing to York Minster, helping us develop our service to the diocese of York, the northern province of the Church of England and all who come here as tourists or pilgrims.”
