Henderson (Hinky) Hall and his wife Pat, who have three grown children, have been members of St. Andrew’s from 1972 to the early 1980s and then from 2009 to present. Hinky and Pat attended St. Phillip’s and Chapel of the Cross between the mid-1980s and their return to St. Andrew’s.

Hall is a lawyer with Wise Carter Child & Caraway, a firm with a long history with the Cathedral through its then senior partner Sherwood Wise, who was involved in the lay leadership of the Cathedral for many years, and especially during the civil rights era of the 1960s. Mr. Wise is the author of “The Cathedral Church of St. Andrew A Sesquicentennial History 1839 – 1989,” a comprehensive history of the Cathedral that has been a cornerstone in St. Andrew’s splendid archival activities (coordinated by V.A. Patterson). Wise Carter also has been a long-time sponsor – along with the Cathedral and the Mississippi Museum of Art - of the “Music in the City” programs.

In the past Hall has served on the boards of the Mississippi Opera Association, The Oaks House Museum, and the Mississippi Chambre Music Guild (founded by Cathedral member Royce Boyer). For several years Hall worked on the St. Andrew’s “serving team” for the Tuesday Morning Breakfast Club, and currently is a member of the Community Partnership Commission (headed by Thorne Butler), which coordinates the important work of community outreach by the Cathedral.

In 2015 Hall was elected to serve on the vestry at St. Andrew’s. During his time on the vestry he worked on a number of projects involving the Cathedral, including coordinating the drafting and adoption of bylaws for the Cathedral. Hall also worked on the Profile Committee, which was charged with the task of developing the profile of the Cathedral in connection with the search for a new Dean. The outstanding product of that Profile Committee effort now appears on the Cathedral’s website. In addition, in 2017, working with co-coordinator Ellen Bourdeaux, Hall helped to plan a series of events entitled The Kneel-Ins: The Voices and the Vision Forward to commemorate the church visit campaign of 1963 and 1964.

“I have enjoyed immensely working on projects at St. Andrew’s Cathedral,” Hall said. “I believe that the future of St. Andrew’s is very bright as we look forward to welcoming a new Dean.”
