Andrew Casad joined the Cathedral staff in 2021 as coordinator of Children’s Faith Formation. He is passionate about sharing the richness of our Catholic tradition with both children and adults especially through liturgy, scripture, and history. Trained in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, he accompanies children as they experience the joy and wonder of God’s love for us as revealed in Jesus Christ.

Andrew has served in liturgical and catechetical roles in both the chancery and parishes of the Archdiocese of Seattle since 2013. He holds a Master of Theological Studies from the University of Notre Dame and a MA in cultural anthropology. Andrew teaches online theology courses with Notre Dame, serves on an ecumenical board for Alpha, and has written for Catechumenate, Pastoral Liturgy, New Blackfriars, and Catholic Rural Life.

Andrew and his wife--a UW research scientist--are raising their children on Vashon Island where they enjoy paddling, cooking, making music, playing sports, and stewarding their share of our common home.
