Kate (Kathryn Fraser Bell) is our Vestry Clerk. She is married to David Houston (q.v.), and they have two children, Meg (Margaret Avril Bell Houston) and Stuart (Stuart Fraser Bell Houston).. Meg is currently in college in Iowa (the ORIGINAL Cornell :) ), and Stuart is taking classes at OCC when his health allows.
Kate trained and served as a United Methodist pastor, before being called into various chaplaincies. She is currently Protestant Chaplain at Loretto Health and Rehab, plus she works weekends as a Hospital Chaplain at Crouse. In this whole process, she moved to the Episcopal church, where she is officially counts as lay person.
Because of her job, she can't take part in Sunday services any more, but is as active as she can be during the week.
