We are delighted to welcome Cate Anthony to Bishop Anderson House. Cate is very excited to be here in Chicago with the Julian Year, the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago’s Service Corps program. Cate is a Delawarean who recently moved to the Chicago area by way of Montreal, where she recently completed a Bachelor of Theology at McGill University. (No, sadly, she does not speak any French! She can, however, do a wonderful Canadian accent, eh?) Cate also in active discernment for Holy Orders in the Diocese of Delaware. It is Cate’s hope that her time at Bishop Anderson will provide a blessed space for her continued discernment on where God is calling her.
Beyond discernment and her chaplaincy experience this year, Cate is an avid cook and baker whose back-up plan in life is to own a pie shop on the coast of Maine. Cate is also looking forward to winter, which is her favorite season. Finally, Cate enjoys writing about and exploring the intersection of faith and body image culture and hopes to use this year to further pursue that work.
The Julian Year is affiliated with Episcopal Charities and Community Services in the Diocese of Chicago. It is a year long program with 15-20 participants. While the program is distinctly Episcopalian, participants of other faith traditions or spirituality.
