Mary Hulst is new Calvin Chaplain
Back in her student days at Calvin, there was one on-campus job that appealed to Mary Hulst. “I thought that the chaplain job looked like a vibrant job, a fun job,” Hulst remembered. “And Coop did it so well,” she added of Dale Cooper, the man who served as the Calvin chaplain for 30 years until he retired in 2007.
Last week, Hulst was named the third Calvin chaplain since the role was created in 1962—and the first woman to serve as Calvin chaplain “It’s amazing, letting it settle over me that this is now my job,” she said.
