Originally from Poland and raised in the great state of Iowa, Rev. Dorota moved to Wisconsin in 2002 where she earned a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science from Marquette University. After discerning a call to priesthood, she earned her Masters of Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary while also serving Christ Church in Georgetown as a seminarian and deacon. She was ordained in 2013 and moved back to Wisconsin to begin her priesthood as the Associate Rector of St. Andrew’s in Madison.
While a community organizer in Milwaukee, Rev. Dorota fell in love with the Episcopal Church and the way it beautifully integrated ancient spiritual practices with 21st century opportunities and challenges. She carries that passion forward and believes in ministries that inspire, move, teach and share the community, fostering strong and sustainable lay leadership, and finding new opportunities for creativity and joy in ministry.
Rev. Dorota is an avid runner, as is her husband Colin. She also enjoys baking bread, biking, swimming, recycling, and dessert.
