The Rev. Mary Kate Rejouis came to St. Aidan’s in 2005. Prior to that, she served as the Vicar of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Basalt, Colorado from 2000 to 2005 and as Associate Rector and Priest-in-Charge at St. Michael and All Angels, South Bend, Indiana. She was ordained to the Diaconate and Priesthood in 1997. A native of Boulder, M. Mary Kate finds St. Aidan’s to be a place of really joyful ministry among the parish, with so many who have been part of the very early years of St. Aidan’s since its founding in 1948 and also in the Canterbury Episcopal Ministry. Campus ministry is vital to M. Mary Kate, who came through the Episcopal Campus ministry at Dartmouth College. She’s hoping to get back to swimming and running soon and mostly enjoys spending time with her two young children, John and Elizabeth.

Deacon Joe was ordained in the Diocese of Southern Ohio in June 2009 and served as Deacon at Trinity Episcopal Church in Columbus, Ohio. While there, he founded ‘In The Garden’, a ministry for the downtown homeless community. He continued his diaconal ministry in Jacksonville, Florida, after moving there with his wife, Carol. In 2016, he and Carol decided to move to Colorado, the magnet being their son, daughter-in-law and grandson. They began worshipping at St. Aidan’s, and immediately felt comfortable and welcomed. Watching baseball, cooking and watching their grandson grow up are some of their favorite pastimes. He is very happy to be of service and part of the St. Aidan’s clergy community.
