Deacon Rosean Amaral
The radical welcome and true hospitality of the ECC Constitution first called Rosean to Mary of Magdala. She has served on the original steering committee and leadership council and now serves on the Adult Education Formation committee and the Foot Washers Ministry.
Rosean has completed 4 years of study in the program of Theological Education for Ministry and also a spiritual director having completed her formation in Denver. On April 29, 2017, Rosean was ordained to the permanent diaconate. "Thanks to the open arms of inclusiveness at Mary of Magdala", says Rosean, "I am free to join my 'YES!' to the many faithful who have come before me."
Rosean and her partner of 30 years, Laurie, are the parents of four children who have blessed them with ten grandchildren.
We affirm both women and men
in all ministries valuing their personal giftedness to serve the church.
