The Cathedral Ridge community is made of all of you who have visited, volunteered, donated, and participated in our events. Below are the people who make this community possible.
The Right Reverend Robert J. O’Neill
Bishop of Colorado
Bishop O’Neill, bishop of the diocese of Colorado since January, 2004, is the driving force behind Cathedral Ridge. It is his vision that has turned it from dream to reality, and it will be his legacy as bishop. Bishop O’Neill received a bachelor’s degree from Texas Christian University and a master of divinity degree from Berkeley Divinity School at Yale University. He served 10 years as the Canon Educator at St. John’s Cathedral in Denver, where he created a comprehensive educational program for parishioners of all ages. Before returning to Colorado as bishop, he served as rector of Parish of the Epiphany in Winchester, Mass. While in Massachusetts, he was extensively involved in planning and developing the Barbara Harris Camp and Conference Center there. He was also a mentor for the Massachusetts diocesan Outward Bound programs, and helped establish the Diocesan Youth Leadership Academy. He and his wife, Ginger, have four grown children.
The Reverend Canon Ken Malcolm
Missioner for Evangelism, Christian Formation, and Leadership Training
Executive Director of Cathedral Ridge
A graduate of Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest, Rev. Malcolm moved to Colorado in 2012 to become rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Durango, and joined the bishop’s staff in 2015. Before coming to Colorado, he was associate rector at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Austin, where he had responsibility for Christian education and communications, as well as strategic oversight of all children’s, youth and young adult ministries. Before becoming a priest, Rev. Malcolm served as program director for the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, coordinating all Christian education programs, including residential summer camp chaplains, conference center programs and diocesan parish youth ministries. He was also the strategic planning and construction management coordinator for the Virginia Diocesan Center in Roslyn, Va., and was development director for Shrine Mont Camps and Conference Center, a diocesan facility in Orkney Springs, Va. In addition to his Master of Divinity degree, Malcolm has a master’s degree in medieval history from Texas Tech University and a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts from Austin College in Sherman, Texas. He and his wife, Beth, are the parents of two sons, Douglas and Peter.

Office Manager & Reservation Specialist
As office manager and reservation specialist, Amanda assists the director of operations in making sure guests have a wonderful experience from initial contact through departure. Ensuring a safe and fun experience for all is the most rewarding part of her daily activities. Amanda received her B.A. in liberal studies from California State University of Bakersfield and also holds an Associates Degree in nursing. She spent 10 years in labor and delivery before moving to Colorado in 2015. Amanda is mother to three children and grandmother to two baby boys. Her oldest grandson was born with Arthrogryposis, a congenital joint disease, so Amanda has become very active with Children’s Hospital and The Ronald McDonald House. Outside of work she loves spending time with her family in Grand Lake and fishing with her husband all over this beautiful state. Amanda truly feels blessed to be of service–to be a part of Cathedral Ridge and The Episcopal Church in Colorado.
