Rev. Phyllis O’Connell is completing her second year as interim minister at Theodore Parker Church while the church seeks a new permanent minister. Read more about Rev. O’Connell here.
At the church’s annual meeting in June 2012, the congregation approved the creation of a Ministerial Search Committee to select a new permanent minister. The committee members are Jessica Basile, Nancy Dale, David Forsyth, Joel Neiditz, and Stänzi Royden.
After two years of intense work, the Ministerial Search Committee announced in April 2014 that its first-choice candidate, Rev. Anne Bancroft, has accepted their call. The congregation will have the opportunity to meet her during Candidating Week, May 4-11. She will preach on May 4 and May 11. Immediately following the May 11 worship service, members of the congregation will cast their vote to call her as our settled minister.
