Sarah holds a Master’s Degree  in Theology from Oxford University and an additional Master’s Degree  in Biblical Studies from King’s College, London.  In additional to her role at Wellesley College, she will be serving as Rector of Saint Michael’s Church in Holliston, MA.  Her start in chaplaincy began as a school chaplain at King’s College School, a boys’ independent day school in Wimbledon, England.  There, in addition to teaching world religions, philosophy and ethics, she also ministered to a multi-faith student body and staff.  She has also served in three parishes over the past two decades both in London, England and more recently in Peterborough, NH.  


Chaplaincy Fellow

Betsy Wooster


Betsy Wooster is delighted to serve as ORSL’s 2017-18 Chaplaincy Fellow with the Protestant community and the Multifaith Council at Wellesley College. Betsy is a Master of Divinity candidate at the Boston University School of Theology, studying in the chaplaincy track, and is a member in discernment for ordination in the United Church of Christ. Prior to moving to Wellesley, Betsy served as director of spiritual formation at three congregations in Cleveland, Ohio, and earlier in her career as promotion director of the national magazine of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

 

Betsy is a graduate of Westminster College, where her study of English literature strengthened her interest in the broader narrative of the religious and spiritual life. She believes that we become more fully human by paying close attention to the narrative of our our own lives and our lived experiences of the Divine. Her roots in the Protestant Christian tradition led to her interest in interfaith relationships and shared contemplative practices.

 

Betsy is the proud mom of two grown children, and she lives in Wellesley with her husband, Matt, who is senior minister at the Wellesley Hills Congregational Church. She can often be found walking and jogging on the trails in town, or hiking/cycling anywhere in New England!
