The Rev. Dr. Caroline “Caro” Hall is priest-in-charge of St. Benedict’s Episcopal Church in Los Osos, California. She loves to preach, teach and lead worship. One of her passions is helping people who feel excluded from Christian faith community because their beliefs don’t fit the mold, to realize that Christianity is a lot bigger and broader than they thought and that God’s abundant love is available to everyone.
Caro’s background is in social work, and non-profit management. She is English and grew up int he Church of England, but has lived in the US for more than 20 years – most of them in Los Osos. She met her spouse at the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland where she lived for several years in the 1980s. Caro is the author of A Thorn in the Flesh: How Gay Sexuality is Changing the Episcopal Church.
She is the national President of Integrity USA, the national Episcopal ministry for LGBT and their loved ones; she also serves on the board of People of Faith for Justice (formerly known as Central Coast Clergy and Laity for Justice), and is one of the founders of the Coalition of Welcoming Congregations.
