Saint John's Cathedral in the Episcopal Diocese of Colorado has announced that the Rev. Dr. Patrick Malloy, Professor of Liturgy at The General Theological Seminary, has accepted the position of Interim Dean. Members of the St. John's congregation report that Malloy "was kind, a good listener, thoughtful, compassionate, intelligent, and had a solid sense of the needs of the Cathedral in this time of transition." As part of his transition, he will continue at General Seminary through this year's graduation and take up his new position in June. Malloy came to General in 2009 as the Associate Professor in the H. Boone Porter Chair. He was made a full professor in 2013 and also served as General Seminary's Associate Dean from 2011-2013. Malloy has taught at St. John’s University, Collegeville; the University of Santa Clara, California; and Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he was the director of the ecumenical graduate program in pastoral ministry. During his doctoral work, he was on the staff of the Notre Dame Center for Pastoral Liturgy.
Malloy is a member of the General Board of Examining Chaplains, and sits on the Board of the Anglican Theological Review. From 2010-2012, he was chair of the task force charged with gathering liturgical resources for the blessing of same-sex unions for presentation at the 2012 General Convention.
The GTS community is grateful to Prof. Malloy for his many contributions to the Seminary.
