Canon and Senior Associate


As the senior associate clergyperson of the Cathedral, the Canon’s primary role is to support the Dean in furthering the mission and ministry of Christ Church Cathedral. Specifically, the Canon is responsible for day-to-day programmatic operations: leading daily check-ins, overseeing project and program progress, and ensuring seamless integration of our mission and ministry with our daily practices.

As well, the Canon and Senior Associate also has a particular role in new ministry development, working with the Dean and the Canon for the Circle to develop a strategy and ministry programs to make meaningful connections with the many new neighbors
(especially millennials and empty-nesters) who are moving to and living in downtown Indianapolis.

Duties include sacramental and liturgical leadership, staff leadership, ministry leadership, administrative leadership, vocational development as a priest, and shared priestly leadership.
