Because of her interest in pastoral care, she earned four units of Clinical Pastoral Education, including both an internship and a year-long residency, prior to entering seminary. She also holds a certification through the Living Stones Partnership in mutual ministry leadership and collaboration..

       Theresa enjoys small church ministry where she can know ' the parishoners and wear many hats as preacher, liturgist, pastor, writer, counselor, etc. She enjoys being with people in good times and in times of crisis, celebrating, supporting and companioning others along life's jjourneys.

        Theresa also has a particular interest in domestic violence prevention and awareness, as well as empowering others in their life and ministries. Past volunteer work has included those concerns as well as assuring access to safe and adequate housing, health care, and food (among others)..

       In her spare time, Theresa enjoys walking, reading, writing, traveling and being with family and friends.

       Theresa and her husband, Denis, enjoy being a part of the local and St. John's Church communities and look forward to getting to know the people of both communities better.
