The Rev. Dr. Jane Maynard has been called to serve as Interim Rector at St. Thomas for the second time. Jane first served here in 2008-2009, and she is looking forward to renewing relationships and forming new ones with parishioners and staff.

Jane also served as the Dean of the Diocese of Olympia’s School of Theology and Ministry.
Besides her work in our diocese, Jane has a long and varied history in ministry. She served as a hospital chaplain in Boise and San Francisco, a pastoral counselor in Claremont, and a seminary professor at The Church Divinity School of the Pacific. While at CDSP, Jane taught courses in pastoral care and, as the Director of Field Education, placed and supported students preparing for ordination in parishes, chaplaincies, and agency ministries throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
Jane holds a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, an M.A. in Developmental Psychology from the University of Illinois in Urbana, an M. Div. from The Church Divinity School of the Pacific, an M.T.S. in Pastoral Counseling and a Ph.D. in Religion and Personality from the Claremont School of Theology. Jane’s dissertation research focused on the writings of Julian of Norwich as a resource for survivors of AIDS-related traumatic loss.

Together, they have three grown children: Dan, a river ranger and whitewater enthusiast; Beckie, a renewable energy and energy efficiency expert and Marc, a network administrator with a passion for community service.
