Schedule an appointment with her:

Pastor Katherine Museus Dabay joined the Chapel of the Resurrection team in January 2021 after years of feeling a call to campus ministry. She is enjoying getting to know all the great things happening at the Helge Center and the wider campus – and she is especially excited to get to know the students!

In response to God’s free grace, Pr. Kate attempts to follow the call to love God and neighbor through relationship-building, local service and organizing, and “striving for justice and peace in all the earth.” She is passionate about exploring the big questions of life and faith; her favorite parts of ministry are small-group discussions and one-on-one conversation.

Before coming to Valpo, Katherine served for five years as the associate pastor of St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Franklin, TN. She now lives in Valparaiso with her spouse, Thomas, three cats, and a big dog.
