The Reverend Lael Atkinson, Pastor
A resident of the Boston area for twenty-five years, Rev. Atkinson was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. Her undergraduate years were spent at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, where she earned a B.A. in English; she received her Master of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School in Newton, MA. Before entering seminary she worked first in the private sector and later as an advocate for homebound elders in the South End and South Boston with the City of Boston’s Commission on Affairs for the Elderly. She has also founded a bimonthly newspaper for senior citizens and served as a Volunteer Chaplain at Mass. General Hospital.
“My call to ministry developed gradually as I learned to put my faith into action,” Lael explains. “I am glad to be sharing my experiences and leadership with the people of Payson Park Church and the surrounding area.”
