MEET PASTOR GAE
As a child, Pastor Gae’s family vacationed many summers on Kaua`i. She continued that tradition with her husband, Jim and their children. She always imagined living on our island and her dream became a reality when she was called as the Vicar of Christ Memorial Kilauea in November of 2017.
Gae was ordained an Episcopal priest in 1998, following a career in the talent and entertainment business in Las Vegas. She has a BA in Philosophy from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and an MDiv from Church Divinity School of the Pacific, the Episcopal seminary in Berkeley, CA. After ordination, she served as a Curate at Christ Church, Las Vegas (1998-1999) and as Rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Litchfield Park, Arizona (2000-2017). She is a certified Spiritual Director, trained at the Haden Institute in North Carolina, a two year program in the Jungian Christian tradition.
Gae is a widow, a mother of three children and a leukemia/bone marrow transplant survivor. She is a devoted meditator and yoga practitioner, and is learning Tai Chi. She leads bible studies, spiritual direction and dream groups and is available by appointment for individual spiritual direction.
