The Ordination of Hillary Collins-Gilpatrick

Saturday June 17, 2017

Clergy robe at 3:30
Ceremony 4pm

Reception to follow

Follen Church takes great pride in helping to prepare the next generation of Unitarian Universalist ministers. From September 2014 through June 2016, Hillary Collins-Gilpatrick served as our ministerial intern and earned our respect and affection.

Last fall, the Parish Board enthusiastically agreed to ordain Hillary, and at a special congregational meeting in February, Follen members voted unanimously to ordain her.

An ordination is a special worship service, in which a congregation exercises its unique power to bestow the title of Reverend and to bless a minister in her vocation.

Join Hillary’s family, friends, colleagues, mentors, and teachers as Follen celebrates her and ordains her to the Unitarian Universalist Ministry.

Come for the sacred rite and stay for the party!
