I was born and raised Catholic and attended parochial schools through high school. In my early adult years, I was drawn to the Episcopal Church’s come as you are and whom you are philosophy. Unfortunately, as my adult life unfolded, my relationship with God, Church, and community distanced over the course of several decades. A series of life events brought me to Nevada City in June 2022. Additional life events that year proved to be more than I could handle alone and I found myself seeking to reconnect with God, the Church and community. Holy Trinity welcomed me as I was and where I was in my relationship with God. I was welcomed with love, support and no judgment. Holy Trinity is a blessing and I am honored to be part of the Vestry and to give back to this Church and community that has come to mean so much to me in such a short time. I am looking forward to further growing Holy Trinity’s various ministries and community services and further opening Holy Trinity’s doors to others in Nevada County to also come as they are and be part of this special gathering of God.
