Sullivan
The Very Rev. Judith A. Sullivan, President

The Very Rev. Judith Sullivan returned to the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral in July, 2010, following her election as the fourth dean.   She had served previously at this Cathedral, first as Missioner and then as Canon Residentiary, from 2004 to 2007. Prior to her return, she was the Associate Rector of the Church of the Redeemer in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.

Judy is a graduate of Wellesley College and was awarded the M.Div. from the General Theological Seminary. She completed two years of her theological studies at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia where she received the Winters Scholarship Award and the Maul Award for academic merit and promise for ministry.

Prior to ordination, she left a successful career in corporate marketing to direct non-profit organizations which promoted access to higher education for youth with limited opportunities. The Sponsor-A-Scholar Program, replicated in 16 cities throughout the U.S., was recognized by President Clinton with a Point of Light Award. Her experiences working with these youth and their families were instrumental in discerning her call to ordained ministry.

In the Diocese of Pennsylvania, she is a member of the Council of Deans and the Diocesan Transition Team, as well as the former Chair of the Diocesan Liturgical Commission. She has also been an Adjunct Faculty member at the Lutheran Seminary, leading groups of Episcopal and Lutheran seminarians in pastoral formation. She has served on the faculty of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation’s Preaching Excellence Program for students in seminaries throughout the U.S.

Judy is the Chair of the board of directors for the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia. She is also a member of the board of directors for Episcopal Community Services and the Health Care Improvement Foundation.

Judy is the parent of two adult daughters.  She lives in Philadelphia with her two bichons frisees.
