The Very Rev. Dominic Barrington was installed as Dean of St. James Cathedral in September 2015, after twenty years of ordained ministry in the Church of England, during which he served in the dioceses of Peterborough, Durham and Southwark. During his theological training, he spent a year as an exchange student at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, the Episcopal seminary on the Pacific Rim in Berkeley, California, from which sprung a deep-seated affection for The Episcopal Church.

“In Dominic Barrington, St. James Cathedral has called a strong, loving, and wise priest to be its dean,” Bishop Jeffrey Lee said when Barrington’s appointment was announced in March 2015. “I believe he will be an inspirational leader at the cathedral, and a strong presence in the city of Chicago, championing the mission and ministry of the cathedral as a place of extraordinary hospitality, significant outreach, and excellence in the arts.”

Dominic is well known in both England and the United States for his knowledge and experience of the Holy Land, where he has led over forty pilgrimages in the last twenty years, structured to provide income and employment for the indigenous Christian communities of Palestine and Israel.

Before entering seminary, Dominic spent five years with Arts Council England working to create and fund new performance opportunities for the London Symphony, the Royal Philharmonic, and other orchestras. He also worked for several years with some of Britain’s leading professional choirs and vocal groups, including The Sixteen and the Hilliard Ensemble.

Dominic is married to Dr. Alison Barrington, a music therapist of more than twenty years standing, who has worked in both clinical and academic contexts, and they have two young sons — Benedict and Linus.
