Welcome Pastor Cat Allard!

Lee Church Congregational is pleased to announce the arrival of its new Part-time Settled Pastor, the Rev. Catherine Allard, a graduate of Andover Newton Seminary (MDiv, 2014). Pastor Cat is excited to begin her ministry at the Lee Church during the season of Advent 2023 and to return to her home-state of NH after living in Oregon for seven years. 

 

Pastor Cat served two UCC churches as an ordained minister during her time in Oregon. Most recently she was the Interim Pastor at Smyrna UCC in Canby. She also served on the Board of Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO), one of the largest ecumenical organizations in the country, as the Chair of the Theological Education and Dialogue Committee. EMO meets the immediate needs of communities in the greater Portland area through six direct service programs, while seeking long-term solutions through state-wide public policy and advocacy work. Their direct service programs support refugees and immigrants, food insecure people, low-income people living with HIV, unaccompanied youth experiencing homelessness, and survivors of domestic violence.

 

Pastor Cat’s commitment to community service and building friendship across differences make her a great fit for Lee Church. Lee Church has a long history of serving the community through the Wilkinson Food Pantry, Youth Mission Trips, Community Assistance Fund, and a meeting place for local community groups.

 

Pastor Cat is looking forward to investing her passion for partnering with others in building beloved community with the town of Lee and beyond. Beloved community is a term popularized by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and envisions a world without poverty, hunger, homelessness, and hate. She completed a Spiritual Direction Practicum through Still Harbor in 2022 and also looks forward to accompanying others who may be seeking a compassionate presence to listen with them for the Spirit’s movement in their lives.

 

She has a joyful spirit and delights in the communal spiritual practices of worship and dialogue. Join her and us on Sunday mornings at 9:30am!
