Cathie Caimano

I was ordained in the Episcopal Church almost 20 years ago, back when being clergy almost exclusively meant serving in congregational ministry.

I did that - and loved it! - for a decade, then served for 5 years on the staff of the then-Bishop of North Carolina (you might have heard of him!)  

Then I took what I learned about how ministry is changing and how to support clergy and congregations in the 21st century church - and world - and I became a Free Range Priest in 2016.  

I wrote a book, some articles, got interviewed for a great podcast, and get to serve with some amazing ministries.

Long story short...

My ministry is serving you in YOUR ministry!

Let's work together

to share the Good News of the love of God with MORE people, in MORE places! Send me a message with your comment or question, or to request some time for a FREE initial call.

What is a Free Range Priest?

Why Free Range Priest?

Only about half of all clergy get paid a full-time salary, and that number continues to decline.  

Creative, sustainable ministry is necessary to support the work of sharing Good News in today's world. 

The mission of Free Range Priest is to help make that happen. For YOU and YOUR ministry.

"Cathie has been a courageous truth-teller as long as I have known her.

Free Range Priest is a call for the church to embrace new structures without losing the heart of our ministry - to explore creative ways of connecting clergy with congregations that can bring life and energy to the Jesus Movement."

- the Most Reverend Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church
