Day of the Dead

We are pleased to welcome back to First Parish the Rev. Lilia Cuervo for a special Day of the Dead service. Rev. Cuervo, a native of Colombia, was the first Latin American woman ordained in the Unitarian Universalist denomination. She pioneered full time ministry in Spanish in San Jose, CA. where she served for six and a half years. At First Parish in Cambridge she was the first woman and Latina, to be installed as a Parish Minister. She is a co-founder of the Latino/a UU Networking Association (LUUNA), and the initiator of, and a translator and contributor to, Las Voces del Camino, the Spanish language Unitarian Universalist hymnal. Her degrees include a Master of Divinity from Starr King School for the Ministry, a Master of Demography from Georgetown University, and a B.A. in Math and Physics from Women Teachers College, Bogota, Colombia. Rev. Cuervo will also lead a family-friendly workshop activity on Saturday, October 28.
