Interim Minister on His Way 


We have finalized a contract with Rev. Ian White Maher as Senior Interim Minister of First Unitarian Church. He will begin his tenure with us on August 1.  

The Transition Team is very excited that we were able to attract such an outstanding candidate.  We will plan some formal welcoming activities for later this summer.  

In the meantime, please visit Rev. Maher’s website for a preview of the minister who will join our congregation for a challenging and exciting two years of introspection and transformation in readiness for our next settled minister. Hold on to your hats, folks, we are about to have two red-headed ministers!

Welcome Ian!


The transition team members include Debbie Bieber and Sue Geary (co-chairs), Paul Carpenter, Jessica French, Erin Phinney Johnson, John LaMalfa, Nancy Moos, and Don Walton as the Board liaison.  Email at
