The Search Committee is pleased to introduce you to our ministerial candidate, The Reverend Doctor Sarah Lenzi. Reverend Sarah comes to us after serving as the settled minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Hudson Valley since August 2013. Her ministerial skills, strong academic background and warm personality make her an ideal candidate to lead our congregation for many years into the future.
She received her BA in Religion and Art History at Williams College (2003), graduated from Harvard Divinity School (2007) and has both an MA and PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Pennsylvania (2012). She was ordained as a UU minister in April 2013 and granted Final Fellowship with the UUA in February 2017.
She is also the proud, loving, intentional, single mother of three young boys (Ethan, age 5 and twins Boden and Caleb, almost 2)
Reverend Sarah has strong commitments to religious education and social justice and is eager to lend her abilities to facilitating these crucial aspects of our shared ministry.
We believe that Rev. Sarah is extremely well grounded, intellectually accomplished and temperamentally equipped to help us realize our full potential at USR.
Reverend Sarah is thrilled to have been chosen as our candidate and looks forward to meeting as many of you as possible during candidating week (April 23rd thru 30th). She will be preaching at Sunday Services on those two dates and there will be many additional opportunities to get acquainted on the days in between. Also, remember that the congregation will be voting to call Reverend Sarah immediately after services on the 30th, so please mark your calendars and be sure to take an opportunity to meet with Reverend Sarah.
