St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral, which has called downtown Oklahoma City home since 1904, will install the Rev. Justin Alan Lindstrom as its 14th dean during a worship service set for 11 a.m. Saturday at the cathedral, 127 NW 7.

Lindstrom's installation marks the first for St. Paul's in more than 30 years. The position opened after the retirement of Dean George Back in 2010. Lindstrom was chosen for the position from more than 90 candidates.

“It's an honor to install Rev. Lindstrom as the 14th dean of St. Paul's,” said the Rt. Rev. Edward Konieczny, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma.

“I'm confident his deep faith, exceptional preaching and proven leadership will continue to bring a renewed excitement to the downtown cathedral, which serves as a spiritual home for the heart of our city.”

Before becoming St. Paul's dean, Lindstrom was founding vicar of St. Aidan's Episcopal Church in Cypress, Texas. Originally started as a home church with 26 members, St. Aidan's had grown to more than 800 people when Lindstrom joined St. Paul's clergy staff.

“The Lord called me to full-time ministry in 2002, and has led me to where I am today,” Lindstrom said. “With Oklahoma City on the rise, I look to continue the momentum of this parish and serve as a spiritual leader for downtown Oklahoma City.”
