The Rev. Kay Houck is a cradle Episcopalian whose aspiration in life is to become her most loving self and to provide encouragement and resources for others to do the same. During her formative years, Rev. Kay intended to enter the field of medicine; but during college she discerned a call to nurture and support healing in a different way. Rev. Kay is a graduate of Seabury Western Theological Seminary (now Bexley-Seabury) and was ordained to the priesthood in March 2012.
Rev. Kay served congregations in Syracuse, NY; Windsor, NY; and Lexington, MI before accepting the call to Emmanuel Petoskey. Her leadership style and spiritual life may best be described as contemplative. She enjoys yoga, gardening, and taking day hikes with her husband Matthew, and their beloved Australian Kelpie, Vivienne.
