“My life mission is spiritual nurture for public capacity.  I want us to be strong enough to care, to know the great lightness of being.  This mission grounds me in my first love, which is parish ministry.  My love of teaching directly related to this first love: I find it thrilling to be able to reflect on decades of action in the parish with others who are there.  Sometimes people call me a Dolly Mama, because I enjoy a wide range of spiritual methods.  Other times people say I am a parish pastor plus.  Too many P’s.”  – Donna Schaper
Senior Pastor at Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village, on the south end of Washington Square Park, encourages people with multiple backgrounds through her pastoral ministry, teaching, conference speaking, weekly devotional emails, and inspiring books.  Her most recent book, I Heart Francis, Letters to the Pope from an Unlikely Admirer, is a collection of love letters which affirm and challenge some of his efforts in loving the world and all of its creatures.
