The Rev. Heidi Thorsen was introduced to the Episcopal Church through campus ministry at Stanford University, having grown in evangelical non-denominational church contexts in Southern California. She is recently ordained through the Diocese of New York, and is the Assistant Rector at Trinity on the Green, New Haven. She was formed as a minister through Union Theological Seminary (MDiv, ’17), Yale Divinity School (STM, ’19), and through her former work as a chaplain at Yale New Haven Hospital. Heidi believes that growing more deeply connected to oneself, to others, and to God is the heart of Christian faith and practice. She lives in East Rock with her husband, a grocer at Trader Joe’s, and their two beautiful cats. Heidi would be glad to connect with anyone over shared interests, including (but not limited to): adventurous baking projects, writing religious icons, interreligious dialogue, and long walks through East Rock Park.
