Our Interim Rector
We joyfully announce that the Rev Kathy Trapani has accepted our call to serve as Interim Rector at Episcopal Church of the Resurrection
Kathy has served as Assisting Priest at Church of the Resurrection (CoR) for the past three years and we have all come to appreciate Kathy’s deep faith, talent for faith formation – and ability to consistently deliver thoughtful and thought-provoking sermons. Kathy’s integrity, passion, and experience make her a wonderful choice for Interim Rector.
Prior to joining CoR, Kathy served as Associate Rector at St. Timothy’s from 2001 until 2010 where her duties encompassed all liturgical, sacramental, pastoral and ministerial aspects of parish life.  This included presiding, preaching, pastoral care, administration, finance and budget, long-term planning and development and oversight of lay ministries.  Additionally Kathy’s experience includes extensive program development in Adult Christian Formation and Education, teaching and youth Confirmation preparation. Kathy then served as Interim Rector at St. Timothy’s following the retirement of their long-tenured rector who had served for 22 years. 
Kathy received her Master of Divinity at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, Berkeley.  She holds a Master of Business of Business Administration from UC Berkeley and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UCLA.
Kathy is a California native originally from San Jose.  She lives in Danville with her husband, Tom.  They have four adult children who all live in the Bay Area. In her free time she enjoys reading, playing sports and flying airplanes.


Lent Madness
Lent Madness is Back!  This program is a light hearted approach to saintly education.  Lent Madness is a tournament-like single-elimination bracket of 32 diverse saints.  Each day, the website will feature information about two saints in a matchup, and readers will vote for their favorite.  The winner (who receives the most points due to choosing the most correct winners) will choose what outreach group receives the pool of money.  Who will win the Golden Halo?   Join in the fun and spirit of the season!  Questions?  Ask Whitney Wilson.
