The Very Reverend Jason Roberson was installed as the Cathedral Provost on April 2, 2023. He served most recently on the Bishop’s staff as Canon Missioner for Congregational Vitality and Transitions from 2021-2023. In his capacity as Canon Missioner, he worked extensively with the Cathedral community in the campus revitalization project, including the recent demolition of the parish hall and beautification of the Cathedral grounds.

Father Jason has served in both South Carolina (Holy Cross Faith Memorial in Pawleys Island) and Virginia, he is fluent in Spanish, and he brings with him a wealth of experience in a variety of multicultural and multilingual contexts. He served for over four years at Grace Episcopal Church in Alexandria, VA, a bilingual and multicultural congregation that is an integral part of the historic Latino community in Northern Virginia.

He has worked extensively in the field of medical and court interpretation, and he served as coordinator of interpreter services at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.

“In my work as Canon Missioner, I have come to know and love the Cathedral community in so many ways,” says Father Jason. “I am elated and honored to serve as provost as we begin plans to celebrate 100 years since the construction of the Cathedral in 1924. This important anniversary, along with the revitalization of the campus, will allow us to appreciate and understand our rich history while we plan for a sustainable and vibrant future. We can only imagine the excitement and growth over the next decade as we begin this next chapter in the history of Trinity Cathedral.”

“I am delighted that Canon Roberson has agreed to pastor the Cathedral community during this exciting time of change and development,” the Bishop has said. “His proven pastoral and administrative skills will be of real help, and his cultural sensitivity both the to the Cathedral’s diverse congregation as well as to the uniqueness of the wider community that the Cathedral seeks to serve will help the Cathedral to grow in its mission and ministry.”
