St. James's Episcopal Church rector named dean of Washington National Cathedral

From Richmond-

When President Theodore Roosevelt laid the foundation stone at the Washington National Cathedral on Sept. 27, 1907, the Rev. Randolph Marshall Hollerith’s great-grandmother was in the audience.

More than a century later, Hollerith, 52, is set to become dean of the cathedral, taking him from Richmond and his family’s deep ties to the Episcopal church in Virginia.

Church officials announced Monday that Hollerith, the rector at St. James’s Episcopal Church, will advance to one of the nation’s most prominent houses of worship, where costly repairs are continuing after the 2011 earthquake that was felt across the East Coast. While Hollerith, known as Randy, is grounded in the foundations of his faith, his skill as a fundraiser was also seen as an attribute in the move to Washington.
