After some 30 years climbing the corporate ladder in the health insurance industry, in 2010, Karen's discernment finally led to the "ah ha" moment when she realized God was calling her to be a deacon. In June, 2014, Karen was ordained a deacon in the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania. She sees herself as a servant to God and to others, especially the older population.

Karen served as a hospice and hospital chaplain from 2012 through 2015. Today, she is responsible for Pastoral Ministries at Maris Grove, a continuing care retirement community. Karen’s life has been changed completely over the past 5 years. She sees God’s grace at work throughout her life, especially through her discernment, formation, and ordination. Karen knows God has a plan for her life and feels very blessed and full of joy and anticipation for what is yet to come.

The Rev. Thomas W. Platt, Associate Rector Emeritus

Fr. Tom Platt and his family came to West Chester in the summer of 1968, where he had been hired to teach philosophy at what was then West Chester State College. He had earned a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania, an S.T.B. from Philadelphia Divinity School, and he was ordained an Episcopal priest on December 30, 1967. In Advent of 1968 Bp. Dewitt asked Tom to serve as a supply priest at Holy Trinity. In 1971, the new Rector, William Fischler, asked Tom to join the staff of Holy Trinity as a part-time Associate Rector. Tom served in that capacity until he retired in 2002. He continues to be active in the parish as a Co-mentor of Education for Ministry and as Associate Rector Emeritus, assisting the regular staff as needed. He retired from West Chester University in 2005, where he is Professor Emeritus. Tom and Pat have three children, Susan, Mark and Andrew, and 6 grandchildren.
