La PORTE — Creating some history for one of the oldest churches in the area was nothing compared to dealing with the coronavirus, according to the first female pastor at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

“I encountered almost no resistance to being the first female pastor,” said the Rev. Canon Michelle I. Walker, who was officially welcomed to the church at Renewal of Ministry and Welcoming of Pastor Service on May 6.
