The Rev. Dr. Kate R. Walker (she/her/hers) began serving the First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh in August 2021. Previously she served the Mount Vernon Unitarian Church in Alexandria, and the Meadville Unitarian Universalist Church, in Pennsylvania. She was raised Unitarian Universalist and is a double UU preacher’s kid. She received her BA in Communications from the University of Denver, an MA in Social Ecology from Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont, an M.Div. from Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, California. She received her Doctor of Ministry from Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria. She lives in Pittsburgh with her husband Mark and two deeply loved Springer Spaniels.

As a Unitarian Universalist, Rev. Walker believes we are bonded by universal love. This love unifies us and holds us responsible for our common journey in living and dying with dignity and worth. She believes Unitarian Universalists are guided by a salvation theology grounded in the belief that no one is left behind because we are all sacred in the ever-unfolding act of creation.

Rev. Walker enjoys cups of tea, good pizza, is an outdoor enthusiast who is frequently found hiking, skiing, sailing, biking, and staring at the sky while thinking about nothing at all.
