Karen O'Keefe

Verger, Liturgical Coordinator

In her role as Verger, Karen is to “protect the clergy from wild beasts and vagabonds”, as it has been defined. Perhaps she could more naturally accomplish this mounted on a horse, since she has always been around horses. She is a former horse trainer, barn manager, and veterinarian technician. ┬áKaren now divides her time between two churches (CTR and Church of the Transfiguration, Indian River, MI), her grown family, and (of course) her beloved horse.
