An important milestone for our church

Rev. Frieda Gillespie

Rev. Frieda Gillespie

This Sunday, June 7, we will celebrate an important milestone in the life of the Northshore Unitarian Universalist Church. The Reverend Frieda Gillespie, who accepted our call one year ago, will be officially installed as our third settled minister.

The installation service will begin at 3 p.m., and will be followed by a reception. Please note that we will not have a morning service.

A number of local and visiting clergy will take part in the service. The sermon, “The Ministry and the Mystery,” will be delivered by the Reverend Kathleen Hepler, who is senior minister of Reverend Frieda’s home church, First Parish in Framingham.

The Northshore UU Church, a liberal religious congregation that came together in 1966, represents the merger of four churches in Danvers and Peabody. Today we serve communities throughout the North Shore.

Our first settled minister, the Reverend Charles Wilson, served from 1966-’71, and our second, the Reverend Edwin Lynn, was with us from 1972-2005. Reverend Frieda was called in the spring of 2008 and began her ministry here last August.

Child care will be available this Sunday. Visitors are always welcome.
