Reverend Joshua Mason Pawelek

Parish Minister

I am a theistic Unitarian Universalist;  an accountable antiracist, feminist, queer ally; a liberal, suburban American minister practicing in New England’s old “congregational way;”  a loving husband and father; and a spiritual leader dedicated to transformative preaching, teaching, healing and social justice ministries. Serving as the parish minister of UUS:E has blessed my life in many ways. Most importantly, UUS:E has allowed me—and continues to allow me—to be an authentic spiritual presence and to provide excellence in ministry. I am deeply thankful.

I have grown much during my time in Manchester. UUS:E is a strong and healthy congregation with incredible lay leadership. It offers spiritually uplifting worship; demonstrates a solid commitment to social justice; provides an excellent religious education program for children and youth; sustains a wonderful music program; and offers a growing number of opportunities for adults to engage in spiritual growth. I look forward to many more years of shared ministry at UUS:E!

Ordination: First Parish in Cambridge (Unitarian Universalist), Cambridge, Massachusetts, April, 1999.
