Episcopal priest Katrina Martha van Alstyne Welles Swanson was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1935, the eldest child of the Rt. Rev. Edward R. and Catharine Bedlow Fish (van Alstyne) Welles. Swanson graduated from Radcliffe College in 1956. In 1958, she married George Swanson, an Episcopal priest. They spent a year in Botswana, Africa, in 1966, where Katrina came to accept and champion the ordination of women as deacons, priests, and bishops. On July 29, 1974, Katrina became one of the first eleven women priests in the Episcopal Church in a controversial and irregular ordination in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. From that moment on, these women were known as the "Philadelphia 11." In 1978, Katrina became rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Union City, New Jersey, while her husband was rector of a nearby church in Jersey City, New Jersey.
