A Letter From Dean, The Very Rev. Dr. Malcolm Clemens Young

We feel deeply grateful to Cricket for the wise and compassionate care she provided Alan, especially as his health worsened.

Alan Jones was deeply steeped in Benedictine spirituality. We will never forget his generous vision for reimagining the church and for a Christianity whose primary message is that God loves everyone without exception.
