I think my bio should make it clear, first, that I don’t use the title Mother. If I need a title, I prefer Pastor or Chaplain but actually I prefer to be called Cathy.
Second, I’ve been a part of Christ Church since 1984 when we moved to New Jersey. I was ordained as an Episcopal priest in 1977. I am also an ACPE-certified Educator (commonly known as a CPE Supervisor.) Currently I work with students full-time at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ.
Third, I’ve been married for almost 44 years to a urologist Mike Bickerton, MD. We have three adult sons, two daughters-in-law, and three grandchildren. We live in Fair Haven with our one cat.
Fourth, I graduated from Vassar College in 1971, from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in 1974 with my M.Div. magna cum laude, and my D.Min. in Pastoral Care and Counseling with Distinction from Drew Theological School in 2006. Technically, I am “The Rev. Dr. Cathy Bickerton.”
