"Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

About Pr. Kate
Her career has spanned working with a variety of communities from youth within the foster care and adoption system, to seniors moving from their homes into more assisted living scenarios, to facilitating resettlement of refugees and most recently with congregation and community members related to all aspects of pastoral care. She is currently called as Pastor with Transfiguration Lutheran Church in Fenton, Michigan where she prayerfully cultivates an inclusive and expansive welcome with a congregation that embraces its mission of “Sharing God with All People”.
The Rev Zywicki has a heart and passion for relationships, mental wholeness, and outreach. This, as well as an increased awareness of rising levels of anxiety and suicide within her communities of engagement, led her to form a ministry committed to emphasizing the awareness, prevention, and survivor support of those impacted by suicide, entitled L.I.F.E. Ministry, standing for Living In Finite Experiences. In just her 5 years of called ministry, she has made a name for herself as someone who is committed to maintaining an open, honest, supportive, and destigmatized conversation around the topic of mental wholeness and suicide, advocating for related community educating opportunities, and spreading a message of Hope.
