Judith McKloskey first spoke up for women's ordination when her fourth grade teacher said girls couldn't be altar servers. A long time member of the Women's Ordination Conference, she was active in Women's Worship Circle and Never On Sunday, a group studying lectionary references to Biblical women. After earning a B.S. in Biology and an M.S. in Library Science, Judith managed library networks and religious organizations for 20 years. During that time, she served her parish in many roles, including parish council president and lay preacher. Judith ministers as a hospice volunteer and as a presider and sacramental minister for families and small faith communities. She lives in Minnesota with her husband; they have one adult daughter.
