    The Very Rev. Dr. William L. Stomski, dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, is our chief spiritual and administrative leader. “Father William” was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts and raised in the nearby town of Lenox (Home to the Boston Symphony at “Tanglewood”). He grew up with four other siblings (three brothers and a sister) with a Lutheran and Roman Catholic religious background. Education involved an art degree from Arizona State University, Masters of Divinity from The Lutheran Theological Seminary, Gettysburg, PA., a Masters of Arts in Liturgy from the University of Notre Dame, and a Doctor of Ministry from Virginia Theological Seminary.

     

    Dr. Stomski served two parishes in Pennsylvania, as well as worked at the national level of the Lutheran Church in America (later the ELCA) in Philadelphia as the art director and design consultant for “Ecclesiastical Arts” Studio where custom art, liturgical vessels, furnishings, paraments, and interior renovations of worship space were designed and implemented. Prior to coming to Trinity, Father William was chaplain and sacred studies teacher with Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School in Southeast Florida, teaching two year olds through eighth graders, and a weekend priest with the parish there. With the Diocese of Southeast Florida, he was the Dean and a professor of “Homiletics” and “Pastoral Theology” with the Diocesan School for deacons and pre-seminary students. He also served on the Commission of Ministry and the Bishop’s Search Committee.

     

    Father William is an accomplished watercolorist, enjoys creative projects, reading, cooking, and travel. He and his husband, Ernie Westbrook, have been together for twenty years; their marriage was in Washington, D.C.; their “Blessing Ceremony” was performed by Bishop Leo Frade, now retired Bishop of Southeast Florida, at the 16th Century monastery, St. Bernard de Clairveaux in northern Miami.

     

    Presently Father William is a board member of the Interfaith Clergy Association, active with the downtown Ecumenical Group, and a promoter of our cathedral outreach and cultural programs.
