[Episcopal News Service] Appointments to two new faculty positions at General Theological Seminary were announced Dec. 1.

The Rev. Canon Patrick Malloy, who currently serves as associate professor of liturgy in the H. Boone Porter Chair, will become associate dean. As Malloy assumes the associate dean responsibilities he is expected to announce several new leadership positions at the seminary, according to a press release.

The Most Rev. Dr. Peter Carnley, former primate of the Anglican Church of Australia and GTS’ Distinguished Visiting Professor of Anglican Studies, will serve as president of the school’s Chapel of the Good Shepherd. In this position, Carnley will fulfill some of the ceremonial functions associated with the deanship, according to the release.

In making the announcement, the Rev. Lang Lowrey, GTS president, said the appointments anticipate the departure of the seminary’s dean, the Rt. Rev. Peter James Lee, who has been named interim dean of the American Cathedral in Paris, a position he will assume in January.

Approved in October by the Board of Trustees’ executive committee, the two appointments will take effect on Jan. 1.

The General Theological Seminary was founded in 1817 in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City as the first theological seminary of the Episcopal Church.
