Rev. Kathryn Costas

Interim Rector

The Rev. J. Kathryn Costas began serving as Interim Rector of Grace Episcopal in Oct.  2017. Prior to her arrival at Grace, she served as Interim Rector at St. James Episcopal Church in Lenoir, NC.  Kathryn was ordained in the Diocese of Western North Carolina and is canonically resident in the Diocese of Indianapolis.

Kathryn has focused on intentional interim ministry, believing that it is important for churches to take the time to discern who they are and who God is calling them to be as they move into the process of calling a new rector. She enjoys working with congregations during this time of healing, change, and looking to the future. Before being ordained, Kathryn was a licensed clinical social worker in Asheville, NC, and co-owned a private group practice that served children, adults, and families.

She has two adult children and three grandchildren and enjoys reading, painting, walking on the beach, and hiking in the mountains. Kathryn looks forward to helping Grace through its transitional period.

Anne is a seasoned  parish priest and interim pastor, having served over thirty years in congregations within the Dioceses of Virginia and Chicago. She brings extensive knowledge and experience in congregational leadership to our diocese, having been a proven leader and teacher in areas of organizational change, prayer practice, capital campaigns, and more.
