The Venerable Jane Miron

Diaconal Formation

The Venerable Jane Miron was born and raised in the Mennonite Church and was the daughter of a Mennonite minister. Jane and her husband (who was raised in a Jewish family and later served as a minister in the Mennonite church) and children joined St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Lancaster, Pa. in 1986. After serving as a Vestry member, Junior Warden and in other roles at St. Thomas, Jane began to feel a tug toward ordained ministry. She was ordained to the permanent diaconate in February of 2005. In 2011, Jane retired from a career as first an elementary school and then a middle school history teacher.

When not involved in church-related work, she spends her time with her grandchildren, reading, being with people, bicycling, writing skits and whatever else seems like fun. Her family includes her husband, David, an instructional facilitator in comparative religion at Elizabethtown College and coordinator of clergy and congregational care for the Samaritan Counseling Center in Lancaster, two children, Hannah and Nick, two grandchildren, Sierra and Christian and a not very well behaved cat.
