Meet Katie Kirk

  Posted on   by   No comments

I’m Katie Kirk, a seminarian at Yale Divinity School, where I’m a second-year at Berkeley, the Episcopal program.

I grew up in rural Alabama, near Auburn University, where I studied philosophy, German, and English.  After some time working in the education sector in the deep South and in northern Germany, I moved to New Haven last fall during the pandemic to start my Masters of Divinity and pursue ordination in the Diocese of Alabama.  I spent the summer as a hospital chaplain at Emory University Midtown Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, worshipping among the Disciples of Christ faith of my family and the Greek Orthodox tradition of my partner.

Though I am excited for many things this year, from continuing to think about queer and trauma-informed theology and pastoral care to experiencing the Eucharist for the first time in-person at my seminary chapel, I am most excited to start my ministry internship here in Norwalk.

Warmly,

Katie Kirk
