Rev. Joanna (Jolie) Olivetti to be our next minister

At a special congregational meeting on May 5th, the congregation voted to adopt the recommendation of the Ministerial Search Committee and call the Rev. Joanna (Jolie) Olivetti to be our next minister. Jolie is currently an interfaith chaplain at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and has a strong background in social justice work. To read more about her, see <add link to all the information already up there about her>.  She will begin her tenure on August 1st; until then the Rev. Wendy Bell will continue to serve as our interim minister.  We are grateful to the Search Committee for their diligent work over the past two years:  Tom D’Avanzo, Linda Godfrey-Bailey, Beth McGregor (chair), Laurie Wallace, Valerie White and Karen Zelevinsky.
