Embracing Our Past, Reimagining Our Future Timeline

We reflect on our shared history as we strive to become beloved community.  To help us better understand as a congregation how our church community has been an actor in the complext racial history of our city, we have created this timeline.  It traces the history of our church from its beginning in 1850, as a parish formerly known as The Church of the Saviour, until today, as it serves as the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania.  A hard copy version of the timeline is displayed on a full wall of the Liem Azar Center.  We invite your reflections on this community project.

Dean's Message - New Clergy


Tyrone lo res

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Very Rev. Judith A. Sullivan, Dean of the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral, announces with joy the appointment of the Rev. Tyrone Fowlkes as Canon for Congregational Life. The Rev. Fowlkes is entering his fourteenth year of the priesthood, having served parish and cathedral communities in Indianapolis, Chicago, Oakland, San Francisco, and Raleigh-Durham. He is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree in theology and the arts at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities. 

His background weaves together experiences in the arts, social justice, and spirituality. Through worship, formation, and pastoral care, he works to nurture and empower others and to help them realize their God-given capacity for leadership. Across the spectrum of his ministry interests, the Rev. Fowlkes has fostered welcome and inclusion for diverse communities, as well as concern for the poor and marginalized.

We are excited about the Rev. Fowlkes' ministry at our Cathedral and know you will enjoy getting to know him in the weeks and months ahead. He will be joining the Cathedral congregation for worship on Sunday, July 17.
