The Reverend Dana Colley Corsello joined the Cathedral as its vicar in July, 2017. She served the last eight years as the rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in San Francisco, Cali., where she was called to resurrect a prominent but dying parish. In less than three years she more than doubled Sunday attendance, eliminated a significant budget deficit and created vital outreach projects to the city and beyond (co-founded an interfaith food pantry with five other congregations serving Chinatown and lower Nob Hill and missional relationships in the Philippines and Guatemala). Prior to St. Luke’s, Corsello served St. James’s, Richmond, Va., and St. Mary’s-in-Tuxedo, Tuxedo Park, New York.
Corsello was ordained in 1999 in the Diocese of Northwest Texas (she hails from Midland, Texas). She is graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a Bachelor of Journalism and The General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church, New York with a Master of Divinity (1999). She and her husband, Andrew, have two sons, Quincy, 14, and Casper, 12.
