Pastor Jane Hale

Pastor Jane is a longtime northeast Connecticut resident who is passionate about beloved community-building. She believes wholeheartedly in honoring the faith as it has been handed down to us through the ages, as well as being open to discovering God at work in the everyday stuff of our lives and relationships. She is overjoyed to be serving this community of faith!

Pastor Jane comes to us with a host of parish and ministerial leadership experience. She has worked closely with St. John’s Episcopal Church in Vernon, CT and Christ Church in neighboring Pomfret, CT, and she has served as Chaplain at both the Rectory School in Pomfret, CT, and at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Worcester, MA. 

She received her Masters of Education from Harvard University in 2000, and her Masters of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School in 2016. Pastor Jane shares her life with Laurence, her beloved husband, their three children (Helen, Newell, and Peter), and two silly fur babies (Sebbe, the golden retriever, and Weezie the TV- watching wonder poodle), all of whom remind her on a regular basis that God has a great sense of humor, and “comes to us disguised as our life!”
