Announcement: A New Minister is Under Contract
Reverend Pat Haresch has accepted a contract at UUCL
On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Ministerial Search Team, I am pleased to announce that we have unanimously and enthusiastically voted to offer a contract for ministry to the Reverend Pat Haresch, and she has now agreed to the contract. Her ministry will begin August 16, 2022, and the contract is anticipated to run for two years but it is annually renewable upon the mutual agreement of both parties. Like our ongoing church life, Reverend Pat’s will work both in person and remotely as she and her family currently live two hours away.
The Reverend Pat(ricia) Guthmann Haresch is a lifelong UU who earned her B.A. in Theology from Carleton College in Minnesota and her MDiv from Andover Newton Theological School outside of Boston. She served as settled minister from 2006-2013 at the UU Congregation of the Outer Banks and as a Developmental Minister at the First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa from 2018-2021. She served three other congregations in more limited capacity and has lived abroad in the Philippines, where she volunteered and provided consulting with UUs there, and Colombia between her ministries (her partner works for the State Department).
