Dear Cathedral Community,


It is with great joy and anticipation that I write to announce a significant addition to our clergy team.  As the Rev. Canon D. Littlepage has joined the staff of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, they have accepted my invitation to serve as Priest Associate at the Cathedral.


Canon Littlepage brings with them a wisdom and a deep commitment to serving the church and its community. Their passion for social and racial justice combined with their outstanding preaching skills will be a tremendous blessing to our community We are truly blessed to welcome them into our fold.


It has been our long-standing practice for the Cathedral Dean to extend an invitation to the clergy staff of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut (ECCT) to serve in this capacity. Christ Church Cathedral stands not only as a place of worship and service for our congregation but also as a spiritual home for all Episcopalians in our state, and particularly for clergy across the diocese. It is fitting for diocesan staff or non-parochial clergy, to consider the cathedral their primary place of worship.


Bishop Mello expects his Diocesan Canon Staff to be present across the diocese, and rightly so.  We are blessed to welcome them twice or three times a year to preach and celebrate the Eucharist in our midst. From time to time, they may join us for other programs as their schedule allows.


Canon D is scheduled to preach and celebrate on June 30, 2024. We will welcome them as our Cathedral does well. There will be cake!



With gratitude and excitement for the future,



The Very Rev. Miguelina Howell, Cathedral Dean

The Reverend D Littlepage serves on the staff of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut as the Canon for Mission Advocacy, Racial Justice & Reconciliation.

Prior to becoming a Canon for ECCT, Rev. D served as Rector of Trinity Church, Hartford. While at Trinity, D was an active member of the Greater Hartford Interfaith Action Alliance (GHIAA) Clergy Caucus, the Asylum Hill Neighborhood Association, and the ECCT Title IV Taskforce, among other endeavors. Prior to serving at Trinity, they served as the Director of Roxbury-Dorchester Power in Community, a collective founded by three Episcopal parishes and the Diocese of Massachusetts.

Throughout their ministry, D has served with a clear sense of God’s call to celebrate the holiness of God in the margins and to equip and support communities in living the Gospel of God’s love in the world around them. D is blessed to journey through life with their wife Kristen and their dog Caleb.
