Interim Bridge Priest: The Reverend Jennifer D. Beal
Rev’d Jennifer joins us as we wait for our new rector. She was ordained in this Diocese in 1990 and served many parishes before she moved to Los Angeles in 1999. There, she encountered the varied adventure of interim ministry because it asks God’s Spirit to transition our messiness into Christ’s beauty. Bridge ministry shortens that time frame even more!
Jennifer lives in Concord, MA and served as Priest Associate at St. Luke’s in Hudson after returning from Los Angeles.
Prior to ordination, she was formed by Berkeley Divinity School at Yale and its affiliate the Institute of Sacred Music, Worship, and the Arts. As a musician from Oberlin College, she pays attention to the rhythm, pace, and pitch of worship, liturgy, and life. Children/youth and programs for them (Godly Play, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, Journey to Adulthood) as well as elderly and ministry with them (pastoral care and hospice) accompany her calling to serve, teach, care for, and love all people.
Jennifer is married to Julian Cole, a fellow English Country dancer, Concord Chorus singer and board member, and cellist with whom she plays and performs in the Littleton Wedgewood cello quartet. Her daughter, Katalina Gamarra, attends Drew University and keeps the household intellectually and musically alive. Laughter dances in their lives!
