Pastor Elaine Gaetani

 

Introducing Rev. Elaine Gaetani

Rev. Elaine S. Gaetani, better known as Pastor Elaine, is delighted to be called as our Sabbatical Pastor starting May 4th – July 31st while Pastor Ken takes his much needed and well-earned Sabbatical.   Pastor Elaine’s half time position will cover Pastoral Care and Sunday Worship, as well as Faith Formation and Administration.

A graduate of Boston College and Andover Newton Theological School, and Ordained to the Christian Ministry in the United Church of Christ in 1998, Elaine and her family return to our church after 24 years of being away serving churches. She and her family were members here from 1989-1994. The OCC holds a special place in their heart for the churches role in her call to ministry and their prayerful support during her years of formation.   Two of their three children were confirmed in this church!

This will be her third pastorate, having just resigned from her fourteen year position as the Associate Pastor and Pastor of Spiritual Development for The Congregational Church of Westborough, UCC, Westborough, MA. She is eternally grateful for the   loving Westborough UCC and their wonderful and rich ministry together over the many years.

She and husband Steve have been residents of Norfolk, MA for thirty two years where they raised their family.   All three of their (now adult) children are proud KP grads who went on to great colleges and careers!  Two of their daughters are now married and living in the surrounding area and Steve & Elaine are the proud grandparents of five grandchildren.   Their son Ben is engaged to be married this September to the love of his life, Meghan.  They also have three “grand dogs” all chocolate labs and love biking, hiking, kayaking and playing with their grandchildren.

Pastor Elaine is thrilled to be here ministering among us.

May The Holy Spirit bless us all and may we rejoice in the company and fellowship of one another
