Where we’re coming from…

Kate grew up two blocks from her parish in South Dakota. Her Catholic identity has been as shaped by the experiences of “playing communion” with her sisters, praying to Mary to win cross-country meets and hiding out from the Church in Oregon as by her middle-class, White, small-town Midwestern, two parent, two sister, daughter of a small business man, public school, Catholic college, trying to be an Ally, strive-for-perfection background.

The oldest of four children, Jen grew up across the street from her parish school in Southern California. Experiences leading up to a summer stint at a Catholic Worker house between her junior and senior years of college awakened her feminist consciousness and brought her into deeper reflection on her bicultural identity.
