Mtr. Lin will be moving to the Memphis area to be closer with to family. She states, "As I move to Memphis to assist in distance learning for my two grandchildren - first grade and fourth grade - I leave Oklahoma with a heavy heart. I have been met with such hospitality, kindness and compassion in my transition to the Episcopal Church. I will look forward to living faithful to my orders by serving a rural church or supply preaching in TN if there is a place for a woman priest who loves people and the Lord. I give God thanks every day for the wonderful memories and blessings received here."

Mtr. Lin was ordained a pastor in the United Methodist Church in 1997. After completing training at the Iona School of Formation she was ordained to the bi-vocational priesthood in 2016 in the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma. 

She served part-time as Vicar at St. Luke's Chickasha and full-time as a Chaplain in the Norman Regional Health System. Previously, she was a registered nurse.

Her last day at St. Luke's will be September 13th.
