The Rev. Kate Stangl, of Crosslake Presbyterian Church, doesn’t prefer to be called “pastor” or “reverend,” but rather just “Kate.”
She’s been an ordained minister for 32 years now, and has been working in Crosslake for just more than four years.
“I prefer Kate. Unless I have to have some clout,” she said with a smile.
Kate’s father was a preacher, and of the five children in her family, three are also preachers. She says she really grew up in the church.
She said that on Sunday afternoons, she’d line up her stuffed animals and preach to them.
