Daniel joined the USG staff in 2013 and after three years of excellent service, he decided to leave USG to seek settled parish ministry. We wish him all the best in the next phase of his ministry.
In sharing his news with the congregation, Daniel wrote:
I have accepted the call to serve as parish minister at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Grafton and Upton (UUSGU) in Massachusetts. The congregation voted unanimously to call me as their minister after services on Sunday, June 2016.
This move is a homecoming for me and a return to a region where I spent significant portions of my childhood and adolescence. I am so excited about the possibilities and the challenges of this new position. The congregation has really embraced me as a person and my ministry and I am so grateful.
I am also appreciative of the ministerial formation and support received at USG. I am taking many fond memories with me as well as invaluable practical experience from my time in Germantown. I will be relocating to Grafton in July and I promise to stay in touch with the Unitarian Society of Germantown.
This process has been a real leap of faith into the unknown and it looks like I’ve landed in a most wonderful place.
Update from Daniel in August:
I am now settled in my new home in Shrewsbury, a charming town just down the road from Grafton. If folks wish to be in touch, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or mail me c/o UU Society of Grafton and Upton, P.O. Box 102 Grafton, MA 01519.
