All Saints Church in Pasadena, California, has called the Very Rev. Michael Kinman as its eighth rector.
Kinman, dean of Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis since 2009, returned from a sabbatical June 12 to inform members of the cathedral of his decision. The wardens and search committee of All Saints held the news of the decision until the same morning.
In announcing Kinman’s call, the cathedral said that he will preach his final sermon there June 26 and that June 30 will be his last day in the office. He will then resume his sabbatical.
He will join the staff at All Saints Nov. 1. Kinman succeeds the Rev. Canon Ed Bacon, who served as rector for 21 years.
