July 1st we welcomed our new Director of Religious Education, Brett Maccani. He will be guiding our children’s religious education as well as overseeing adult faith development programs.
Brett says, “I have been on a spiritual quest for many years. I have studied most of the major world religions as well as many Native American traditions. In my quest I found Unitarian Universalism as a place I can call my spiritual home. For many years I have been involved in social justice issues. Being a gay man as well as the father of a black daughter I have a special interest in LGBTQ+, racial equality issues, and women’s equality. I have a long work history in health care and have worked with the underserved. I am a strong supporter of community service and providing a living wage and equal health care for everyone.
I plan to bring my experience into my work in the DRE position. I hope to draw on the knowledge and experience of those who came before me and the great volunteers who assist me.”
Welcome, Brett! We are grateful you are here.
