The Rev. Canon Andrew J. W. Mullins, Class of 1967, has been called to rejoin the clergy staff of St. Bart’s, New York as Assistant Rector, liturgy, pastoral, and development ministries.
Mullins previously served St. Bart’s for 21 years until January, 1990. During this time, he led the St Bartholomew’s Community Club, a young adult ministry which grew to 2,300 members and included outreach programs and the St. Bart’s Players. He also founded the St. Bartholomew Community Preschool almost 45 years ago.
In 1990 Mullins was called to be the Vice Dean of St. Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle, where he played a significant role in a $13M fundraising and renovation project. Due to his abiding interest in early childhood education, he founded the St. Mark’s Cathedral Preschool. It was in Seattle that Fr. Mullins was made a Canon of the Diocese of Olympia by Bishop Warner for his fundraising work at the Cathedral.
Canon Mullins returned to New York in 1998 when he was called as Rector of the Church of the Epiphany on East 74th Street. He served 13 years, overseeing a growing parish, outreach ministry and budget. Upon his retirement, the Vestry honored him by designating him Rector Emeritus of the Church of the Epiphany and naming the renovated church garden the Mullins Garden.
Since his retirement in 2011, Canon Mullins has continued his ministry through part-time and interim roles with a variety of churches nationwide.
