Mary Gelfand is an Interfaith Minister ordained by the Chaplaincy Institute of Maine (CHIME) in 2013. She is no stranger to First Parish as she served her chaplaincy internship here and acted as part-time minister during Rev. Christina’s last sabbatical. As a Unitarian Universalist, she has served in both local and national leadership roles, including five years as national board president of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. A practicing Pagan, her spiritual life is rooted in the cycles and seasons of the natural world which are so abundantly visible in New England. She reads and teaches about feminist theology, the Great Goddess, mysticism, and the mysteries of Tarot. As a fiber artist, she enjoys weaving tapestry and knitting gifts for strangers and friends.
You can watch the June 27th worship service, Goodbye in Good Hands, here. This service was the congregation’s farewell to Reverend Christina Sillari. We wish her the best on her next adventure, and we know that she has left us in good hands.
