Saturday, June 4, 2022 from 4:00-5:15 pm in-person at First Parish in Needham and online.


On March 9, the Parish Committee voted “yes” to ordaining Jenna at our congregation around the close of her internship with us. Though these last two years have been anything but ordinary, Jenna writes that she would not be the minister that she is if not for all of you. In our UU congregational polity, the privilege to ordain is vested entirely with the congregation, so Jenna hopes that you will join on June 4 to ordain her to the UU ministry and celebrate all of our shared accomplishments of the last two years. We will be monitoring the status of the pandemic to determine how much of the ordination will be in-person and how much will be online, if there will be a need for advanced registration, and what the vaccination and masking requirements will be.
