Rev. Patricia Hatch is coming to Maine! This is her first stop on “Patricia’s Family History Preaching Tour!” She will be at the UU Meeting House, Pittsfield Maine, Sunday, June 16th. The Universalist Church was the congregation of her great grandparents, Flora and Dennison Walker, and their five children. Pictured is her grandmother, Ethel Walker, taking a photo of the church before significant renovation around the turn of the twentieth century! Her sermon is entitled, “Homecoming Inspirations.”
We are so delighted to share this wonderful news! The sun is shining again at the Pittsfield UU Church! Rev. Jess Tardy’s path to UU ministry is unique in that she is an interfaith minister and a recent ChIME graduate. Modeling collaborative leadership, she and her partner, musician Ed Arnold, create a magical and sacred space for all present. What a blessing for this congregation, and for our UU Faith Tradition!
