Kate Johnson has been supported through Mission & Service in many ways, in theological education and in her work as a prison chaplain, including her time as part of Kingston Community Chaplaincy. We celebrate her many gifts that have been lived out through Mission & Service–supported ministries!
After completing her undergraduate studies at Lakehead University School of Social Work, Kate studied at Queen’s University School of Religion (formerly Mission & Service–supported Queen’s Theological College). She received a Master of Divinity with a concentration in restorative justice. Currently Kate serves as a member on the board of directors for the Mission & Service–supported Kingston Community Chaplaincy.
A firm believer in the value of interfaith dialogue and community building, Kate brings people together from other faiths and within the prison system. The Kingston Community Chaplaincy offers programs for families and those currently in prison and provides support when prisoners are released. At the core of the chaplaincy is the belief that when crime happens, it is not only the victim and offender who are affected but also the whole community. Kingston Community Chaplaincy seeks to promote healing and safety for all people in an atmosphere of learning how to live together in community once again.
We sing thanksgiving for the many ways Mission & Service supports chaplains.
If Mission & Service is already a regular part of your giving, thank you so much! If you have not given for Mission & Service, please join me in making Mission & Service a regular part of your life of faith. In all our Mission & Service giving, with a willing heart, we sing thanksgiving to God!
