Who We Are
We're located in the historic Vah Ki Inn, built in the 1930s for travelers to the Casa Grande National Monument. We leave the light on for you!
Our vicar likes to be called "Ma Pasto." It's a pidgin name applied to her during her 3-month stay in Cameroon. It means "Mrs." or "Mother" Pastor. She was raised mostly in Idaho, and then attended college in Oregon and seminary in Rochester, NY. She has served parishes in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in Arizona. She is married to a retired priest and has two married sons with a grandchild in each household. Now retired, she serves us on a part-time basis. Her home is in Kearny, AZ and she maintains a weekend home in a snowbird trailer park in Coolidge. One parishioner said, "When we got her, we caught a tiger by the tail."
