Pastor Leslie is Installed

 In Community News

On a picture-perfect fall day in Green Lake, Reverend Leslie Mahraun was installed as The Hearthstone’s Chaplain in a service officiated by Reverend Andy Yee, assistant to the bishop of the NW WA Synod. Attended by staff, residents, members of the Board of Directors and members of the local Lutheran community, the service was a joyful event in which Pastor Leslie’s commitment to The Hearthstone was formally affirmed.

Pastor Leslie’s path to The Hearthstone was a winding one powered by a deep sense of calling to Word and Sacrament from the time she was a little girl. After completing her studies at Luther Seminary, (ELCA) in St. Paul, MN, her path took her through Fargo, Kona, Everson and eventually to Seattle, where she accepted the call of The Hearthstone’s Chaplain in May of this year.

When she’s not ministering within our community, Leslie relishes time spent with her husband Dan, their daughter Kelsey, their son Benjamin and his wife Elise, their grandson Caleb and last but certainly not least, her beloved Corgi Walter.
