Bishop Susan Brown Snook is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Archdeacon for our diocese: The Rev. Deacon Cindy Campos. In her role as Archdeacon, she will provide leadership, communications, community-building, and pastoral support for our deacon community, in collaboration with the Bishop. Deacon Cindy is particularly interested in using this role to support the growth of the vocational diaconate in our diocese, and providing fellowship and support among the deacons.
Archdeacon Cindy was ordained a vocational deacon on September 12, 2020, at the Episcopal Church Center in San Diego. She is currently serving at St Dunstan’s Episcopal Church in San Diego, leading ministries including a ministry of pastoral care, and will continue her ministry there while serving as Archdeacon of the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego. She has also served as deacon at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Poway, and St Andrew’s by the Lake in Lake Elsinore. Cindy is active in the diocese as a member of the Commission on Ministry and the Public Health Task Force. She lives in Rancho Bernardo with her husband, Ed, and their harlequin rabbit, Geoffrey.
We are delighted to welcome Archdeacon Cindy to her new role in our diocese, and Bishop Susan looks forward to ministering alongside her and our community of deacons.
