Our congregation was formed in late 1961 and became associated with the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) in 1963. For 48 years, the congregation was led by its members. Then, it called the Rev. Peter Connolly to serve as its first minister in the fall of 2009.
Rev. Connolly grew up in Dorchester, a neighborhood in Boston, Massachusetts, and came to us from Quincy, a suburb of Boston. For 16 years, he was a social worker with the homeless and the formerly homeless in the Boston area. The last year of this work was as a community minister in fellowship with the UUA.
Peter found his first Unitarian Univeralist home in 1990 at First Church in Jamaica Plain Unitarian Universalist, Massachusetts, serving there in a variety of capacities, serving on numerous committees as well as the governing board. He also founded the Children’s Chapel worship service, which he led for five years.
He received a Bachelor of Arts in English and American Literature from Brandeis University and taught high school English for eight years in the Boston area. In 2005, he earned a Master of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School, graduating with honors. In 2006, he was ordained as a Unitarian Universalist minister.
