Pastor Cat is excited to provide worship leadership and pastoral support while our Pastor is serving in the Oregon State Legislature. Cat moved to Oregon from New Hampshire in 2016 for her first sole Pastorate. She currently serves on the Disaster Ministries and Local Church / Education Ministries Teams for the UCC Central Pacific Conference, as well as on the Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO) Board of Directors.
Her call is deeply rooted in her own experience of “new life in Christ;” which was made possible by the open and affirming theology of the United Church of Christ. Cat’s most persistent calling, is Anti-Racism work ... as evidenced with her involvement with the Common Table’s Reckoning with Oregon’s Racist History Learning Cohort Journey, and as a founding member of the Wilsonville Alliance for Inclusive Community.
Cat lives in Wilsonville with her partner Jill, who is a middle school math teacher and 2nd year seminarian at the Claremont School of Theology.
