The Reverend Kristina Maulden, Dean-Elect

The Bishop of the Diocese of the Rio Grande and the Chapter of St. John’s Cathedral are pleased to announce the election of the Reverend Kristina Maulden as its next Dean. Rev. Maulden is currently the Priest-in-Charge at Trinity Episcopal in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

In remarking on the call of the new dean, the Right Reverend Michael B. Hunn said: “We are blessed in the Rev. Kristina Maulden to have a Dean with deep experience in leading a congregation very similar to our cathedral – one with a Royal School’s Church Music program. She has experience in growing stewardship at Trinity and has led a process of dramatic growth in attendance of young families. Her wisdom, pastoral care, preaching, and liturgical leadership will be a blessing to our Diocese for years to come. I am eager to welcome her, her husband, and sons to the Diocese of the Rio Grande.”

In her 12 years at Trinity Episcopal, she has collaborated on innovative worship and formation programs that bring new families to Trinity on a regular basis. She is a proficient teacher, team builder, innovator, and dynamic preacher.

Dean-Elect Maulden was ordained in 1995, and has served parishes in Florida and Indiana. She also has served as parish youth director and chaplain at an Episcopal school. She received her Master of Divinity degree at Trinity Episcopal School. Prior to her call as a priest, the Rev. Maulden received an undergraduate degree in microbiology and did graduate work in biochemistry at the University of Texas, Austin.

Her first Sunday at the Cathedral will be September 8.
