Taking a new direction in life

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Kay Anders, along with her husband, Peter, came to Los Alamos in 1987. Enders worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory until she retired. But her work wasn’t finished yet. In fact, Anders felt she was being called to take an entirely new path.

Anders achieved a major milestone on this new journey when she was ordained a priest Tuesday at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church. Assisting Bishop William Frey presided during the ordination.

During the ceremony, she said Frey and other clergy members laid hands on her and ask the Holy Spirit to make her a priest and Anders committed herself to being a priest.

The road that led her to this point started when she was a little girl. Anders said she and her mother prayed before going to sleep. Furthermore, Anders attended a renewal movement weekend in Cursillo in 1990. At the end of the program, participants read a passage from Isaiah and each person was asked, “Who will I send?” The response was “Send me.”

Anders said when she made her response, she knew at that point, “I really would be spending the rest of my life serving God.”

“It was very much God’s calling,” Anders said. “It was a longing; knowing I was called to be a shepherd to His people.”

More than 10 years later, she started that process.
