The Very Rev. R. Peet Dickinson IV

Peet Dickinson grew up in Birmingham, Alabama.  He has his undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University and his degree in theology from The University of Oxford, where he studied at Wycliffe Hall.  He was called to the Cathedral in 2009. Peet says, “It is my great joy to serve the Lord at The Cathedral in this very exciting time in the life of this church and this city.  Nothing thrills me more than to see what happens when the Holy Spirit is invited to move and act, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is proclaimed and received, and the call of God to go into the world is answered joyfully.  That, to me, is what it means for our Cathedral to be The Heart of God for the Heart of Charleston.” Peet is married to Jenny, and they have two daughters, Mae and Ellen, and a son Bo.
