In Celebration of 50-40-10 Women's Ordination Anniversaries

Oct 09, 2020
I was ordained on Sunday, June 26, 1983. I am the first woman to be ordained in the East Coast Synod of the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches. I love ordained the ordained ministry of word and sacrament. I love parish ministry even with its ebbs and flows, its often tedious work, its two steps forward and one step back nature of serving congregations.
